It will feel closer to you than him. Tell him nothing about feeling it and see if he actually feels it.

I have been on it for 12 years and never once felt it. Even during sex. And I dont use anything to put it in, just do it and it does what it’s supposed to (I know that sounds weird). Maybe talk to your dr?

I’ve never had any issues with how it sits inside. If you’re putting it in and it won’t go futher, but you can still grab it with a finger to pull it out during your “break” periods, I’d say you’re fine.

I’ve been on the NuvaRing for over a year now, and my SO has never felt it when we’re intimate.

I dont think mine sits properly either, its always seems low to me. At one point it started to hurt a bit cause it had slipped down so much.  Curious if anyone else has any ideas 🙂

 

….even though it is low my FI has never felt it/had it bug him 🙂

You can only put it so high into your cervix. If you feel it, you need to push it up more. When I used it, the only way I could get it far in enough was by using a tampon applicator. If it slid down, I would cross my legs and squeeze, that didn’t always work though. My then-bf never felt it-I didn’t take it out when we’d have sex. I stopped using it after a few months though.

I’ve always just pushed it in and it’s good to go. I figure that if it’s sitting too low, it will get pushed further up when you have sex. I can never feel it, but my SO can and says that it doesn’t bother him.

I don’t use any special technique to insert. I just pinch it so it’s narrow and in it goes.

I used it YEARS ago for some time and hated it, to be honest.  I didn’t feel it and neither did my x, but it bothered me and I think the hormones were too strong for me.  Right now we’re just using withdrawal, but for a while I was just on the lowest dosage of the pill.  I also hated the patch.  Do you have a hard time remembering to take the pill?

@futuremrsk18:  I was worried about the hormones so I discussed going back on pills with my gyno NP. She told me that the Nuvaring has one of the lowest amounts of hormones out there and the only pill that would be lower would probably be the progesterone only pill. I decided to stick with the Nuvaring because it’s easier than remembering the pill at the same time everyday.

I feel like it kills my sex drive, but we both hate condoms and I have a child from the withdrawal method.

@cafelatte:  The nuvaring bothered me “down there” in addition to the hormones.  I’m not sure what pills I was using that was the lowest dose, maybe they were progesterone only?  The pill killed my sex drive, too.  I’m considering getting an IUD, but I switched health insurances recently and now I need to find a new Dr hence the withdrawal method (which is about as effective as condoms, which also bother me – they never used to, but they burn me now, not sure why).  :/

@Kaddy:  If you don’t feel it unless you’re checking for it, then you should be just fine!  As long as it isn’t slipping out and it’s not bothering you, I don’t think you have a single thing to worry about.

@Kaddy:  

It doesn’t matter where it sits, it will work anywhere in there.  As long as it’s comfortable then it’s high enough.  I just kind of shove it up there and let it land wherever it wants lol.  I’ve found guys are more likely to comment on it when using their fingers than while having sex.  If he already knows it’s there it shouldn’t surprise him and it certainly won’t hurt him.
