Can I Use Tampons With Nuvaring
My nuvaring came out with my tampon and fell in the toilet about half an hour ago. I don't have any more right now. What should I do?
Yes: You can use tampons and the NuvaRing together if needed. Follow the normal safety rules for tampons--do not leave tampons in beyond normal maximal length of time. If you accidentally pull out the NuvaRing when removing your tampon, rinse off the NuvaRing in cool to lukewarm water (never hot water as you can damage it) and reinsert.
On nuvaring.Insert on 1stevry month lost 1(removed by tampon, accident). Put new 1 in on the 7th(when noticed 1st gone) spotting on the 18th, why?
Hormone changes : It is important to use birth control methods as directed. Otherwise you expose yourself to unexpected hormonal changes which is what happened here. Just leave the current ring in for three weeks and the out for a week as normal and the bleeding should correct itself over time. Spotting on birth control is very common.
Just started nuvaring for Endo. I've been bleeding 14 so heavy going through pads and tampons, what's wrong?
Had sex about a week ago and since i've been experiencing itchiness/some burning. Kind of hurt to use tampons and couldn't get nuvaring in. Thoughts?
Please i need help! I have horrible vaginal pain. It only hurts when it comes in contact with things, like my nuvaring, intercourse, or tampons. It is?
Need an exam: To say for sure, but what you describe sounds a great deal like vaginismus. You'd need a doctor's exam to rule out other causes, but there is help for this if you choose to.
OK if < 3 hours: Nuvaring may slip out when having intercourse. As long it has been < 3 hours --it's ok! what to do: rinse NuvaRing with cool-to-lukewarm (not hot) water and reinsert it as soon as possible, at the latest within 3 hours. You should still be protected from pregnancy. Remember NuvaRing does not protect against std's, however.
Perhaps not: As with birth control pills, some women may not have the withdrawal bleeding on occasion. This is due to the fact that NuvaRing contains both estrogen and progestin. Estrogen makes the uterine lining grow whereas the progestin makes it thinner. Progestin always dominates so most women will experience lighter periods. Sometimes the lining becomes so thin that no withdrawal bleeding occurs.
Nuvaring: Nuvaring contains hormones estrogen and so could affect breast fibroadenomas and also cause breast tenderness. see below. Note if you have breast fibroadenomas . Monitor for breast cancer as there is an increased risk(BC may decrease it ).

Mild: This is the lowest dose estrogen containing birth control on the market. Side effects include breast tenderness, mild weight gain (5#or less), irregular bleeding, dizziness, change in appetite, headache & bloating. Severe side effects include blood clots, stroke, pain, heart problems etc. As with most birth control estrogens, these are possible but rare.
Ring removal/bleed: Most likely yes, because your uterine lining will shed.
Yes: Having been pregnat is not a prerequisit.
Almost immediate: I would wait until your first normal period. It can take up to 6 months. But, just because you arent menstruating, does not mean you arent ovulating.
Risk pregnancy: A used nuva ring will not provide adequate hormones for an additional month to prevent pregnancy.
