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

I want to take the nuvaring out, I had intercourse 4 days ago. Is it safe to take it out now? Reason: side effects too much?

Contact your GYN doc: Nuva ring is inserted into the vagina for a three-week period and then removed for one week, during which the user will experience a menstrual period. I would suggest that you wait for the date it is due to be removed or you may have failure of contraception.
Talk to your gyn if you have side effects and use barriers like condoms or oc pills. ...Read more

I had an abortion 3wks ago. Had intercourse 2wks later and put on the nuvaring the day after. Can I possibly be pregnant again?

Probably not: At just two weeks after an abortion, given that HCG levels need some time to get back to zero before you start a period, I think that the chance of conception from what you describe is incredibly unlikely. Check a pregnancy test after two weeks. ...Read more

The: The nuva ring should have been inserted within the first five days of your menstrual period. If you inserted it after your period ended, then it is best if you use a back up method for one month. This does not necessarily mean you are not protected, yet the odds are greater that you are not since you inserted it late.
If you have further questions or concerns you should consult your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. 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. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the ring is not working. ...Read more
