Is there a way to insert a nuvaring in wrong even if it feels comfortable?

Probably not: It would be difficult to insert it in an incorrect position if it feels comfortable. If it is in the vagina, your body will be absorbing the medication in NuvaRing properly. ...Read more

I inserted nuvaring for the first time on the last day of my cycle. When will i be fully protected?

I inserted nuvaring for the first time on the last day of my cycle. When will i be fully protected?

One cycle: Scientifically speaking, you are covered, but, most docs will recommend waiting until you start your next cycle to have unprotected intercourse. Remember tho, NuvaRing does not stop stds. Also, there is a 1-2 percent failure rate when used perfectly. If one hundred girls started NuvaRing today, 2 will still get pregnant. Use condoms always as wel, l for pregnancy and std prevention. ...Read more

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.

Will the nuvaring be effective after the 3 week period is up before inserting it for next 3 weeks?

Dr. Alvin Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:

Yes: Removal of NuvaRing allows for withdrawal bleeding. It's meant to be removed after 3wks use. After 4wks, it's effectiveness cannot be guaranteed so you'll need to confirm that you're not pregnant before placing another one after which you'll need to use a 2nd form of contraception until it's been in place at least 7d.

I don't know when my next period is going to be, so should I still wait to insert my NuvaRing or will it give me a period after three weeks?

I don't know when my next period is going to be, so should I still wait to insert my NuvaRing or will it give me a period after three weeks?

Nuvaring: If you know you are not pregnant you can start Nuvaring whenever you like. You have a period during the week that you remove it. If you are not starting after your period (which is fine) then use condoms for two weeks before relying on Nuvaring exclusively ...Read more

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. ...Read more

In the begging of june my wife insert her nuvaring in for 3 weeks and took it out for 1 week then we had sex a day before she insert the ring for the month of july in july she insert the same ring she took out for june now this time she left it in for 4 w

In the begging of june my wife insert her nuvaring in for 3 weeks and took it out for 1 week then we had sex a day before she insert the ring for the month of july in july she insert the same ring she took out for june now this time she left it in for 4 w

What is ur ?: I am not sure what your question is. If your wife reinserted her Nuvaring on time in July (within 7 days after removing June ring), then everything should be fine. Nuvaring is actually effective for at least 4 weeks, so it can be left in for 4 weeks, instead of 3weeks of women who prefer continuous contraception to avoid a period - they change Nuvaring every 4wks without a break. Take Care! ...Read more

Having sex on the same day I inserted my nuvaring...?

Having sex on the same day I inserted my nuvaring...?

Your question?: If this is your first time using the NuvaRing AND you're on day 1 of your period, you're okay. If you insert it on day 2-5, you should use an additional form of contraception for the first week. If you're switching from another hormonal contraceptive. you need to insert it the same day you would normally start your next patch or pill pack. Please read the Package Insert. ...Read more

How many days after I insert my nuvaring should my period stop?

How many days after I insert my nuvaring should my period stop?

Normal time: After you insert it , you will still get the period, but the next period usually will be lighter and not as heavy. You are supposed to remove it after 3 weeks to get a period or you can insert another one right after you remove it so you won't get a period. Your doctor or assistant should have already explained all about this when it was first prescribed. I always take the time to explain. ...Read more

How long after I insert my nuvaring should my period stop coming?

Won't stop: If you use it the normal way , it will still come, but you can insert one right after you remove one instead if waiting 7 days and you will not get a period. Another point , at your age you should be using the lowest hormone dose possible which is not the NuvaRing since your risk of possible adverse events is slightly higher at your age. I rec. Loloestrin has only 10mcg estrogen- safest dose. ...Read more

My period is brown pinkish. Should I consider it as a real one and insert my nuvaring today? My last period was 1mo ago.

Yes: Timing sounds right. You should have had the last Nuvaring out this past week. If so, insert a new one today. You can check a home pregnancy test if you are worried about it, but if you have been using the Nuvaring correctly, it should not be necessary. ...Read more
