Just began nuvaring. During sex I felt it rubbing him. After I saw some blood. Is it the ring? Can I take it out before sex & put it back in after?

I used nuvaring continuously for 3 months. Month 1 and 2 I bled 14 days each. Now I bleed during sex. I take ring out for sex bc of pain. What to do?

Did u have pain prior to the ring? It is soft material and most people tolerate it well. It could be a uti, consider seeing yoour doc, especially if pain is new onset. Good luck. ...Read more

I want to start the NuvaRing, but can I take it out during sex and still be prevented from pregnancy?

I want to start the NuvaRing, but can I take it out during sex and still be prevented from pregnancy?

No: If you are not using any form of contraception and have taken the ring out, you can still get pregnant. I'm not sure why you would want to take the ring out prior to intercourse as that whole point of the ring is that it stays in for 3 weeks & provides contraception. Also know that even with the ring in place, you are not protected from STDs like HIV, Herpes etc unless your partner uses a condom. ...Read more

Pregnancy possible: No birth control is 100%. Condoms can be as low as 70% effective use correctly.

Nuvaring slipped out during unprotected sex. Immediately put it back in when my boyfriend gave it back to me. I am at the end of week 2. Am I still protected?

I just was prescribed the nuvaring vaginal ring. During oral sex will my partner be able to feel it?

I just was prescribed the nuvaring vaginal ring. During oral sex will my partner be able to feel it?

Doubtful: The Nuvaring is typically inserted as far up as you can get it, as close to the cervix as possible. So, unless your partner has an incredibly long and "acrobatic" tongue, I doubt he/she will be able to feel it. Never say never, of course, but I think it's doubtful. Good luck. ...Read more

Can I get pregnant if I had unprotected sex the night before I need to take off the nuvaring?

Can I get pregnant if I had unprotected sex the night before I need to take off the nuvaring?

Quite Unlikeiy: If the question means the night before the NuvaRing is to be removed and start menses, then it would be unlikely to conceive, since the NuvaRing is an effective method of birth control and does not need backup. Protected sex with a NuvaRing is recommended to reduce the risk of contracting a sexxually transmitted disease. ...Read more

Using the nuvaring, left it out all month, unprotected sex with husband during ovulation time. Pregnant?

Do a HPT: Home pregnancy tests s are quite accurate, fast and easy to do, but they have their limit i.e. Maybe too early for the test to pick-up. Usually it turns positive after missing your period, if pregnant etc. If negative, wait 5-7 days and repeat the test. If still negative then, likely it is negative. If positive, congrats and call your doc for care.
Good luck. ...Read more

Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method.
