I didn’t have any luck with the ring either.  Maybe an implant would be a good idea?

Mine typically sits low but I can’t feel it so it doesn’t bother me. Are you just worried it will slip out?

@meke:  Hmmm… I’ve never had an issue with mine “slipping.” Is it uncomfortable? Does it affect intimacy? Is it falling out?

If so, maybe its not the right option. I love mine, but check with your doctor.

My nuvaring always, uhh “lurked” right at the bottom, but it never fell out except during sex occasionally. Vaginas push things outward, it’s just how they roll (in my experience anyway), but the sphincter at the bottom will keep the ring in.

My advice is not to keep trying to push it back up, because that won’t work. Just let it chill down there. Keep checking that it’s there until you gain confidence.

@meke:  I used Nuvaring for years when I was on BC. I usually just pinched the middle and shoved it way up there. You can’t be squeamish 😉

What is it with IUDs lately?  I’ve heard more than a few people whose doctors won’t do them for one reason or another.  I’ve had two before, the last one had to be removed before surgery and now no one will put one back in!

thanks for posting this, I’m starting with Nuva ring on sunday and trying to learn as much as possible from others experience as my doctor gave me the script and didn’t tell me anything else!!!!

@meke:  it’s not quite peeking out but I don’t have to feel up very far at all to touch it. It has only fallen out once during sex and he has never been able to feel it during sex.

I was on the nuvaring and I had similar issues it got annoying. I then switched to the shot and loved it! It’s done once every three months. Now I have an IUD and love it more but since you can’t do that my second favorite is the depo shot. Is that something you’re able to do? There is also the patch although I believe that is once per week. As well as the implant that goes in your arm instead of your cervix. Lots of options!

I just make sure mine is above my pubic bone. It kind of hangs on there.

@meke:  I spotted in the beginning (first month), then I basically had a very light almost non existent period for the remainder (once a month). Everyone is different but that seems to be the common reaction from what I’ve read when researching initially.

Actually, my doctor said to do the shot first before the IUD (Mirena) because it is similar hormones so you can kind of “test” to see how it works with your body, so if the only reason you couldn’t have an IUD was because of your physical shape, you should theorhetically be able to get the shot since it’s basically the same. Not sure why they didn’t mention it as it’s a perfectly acceptable alternative. I would definitely look into it!

@meke:  haha get the ring on… When I first got it I wondered if that would happen but it never did.

I’ve had it for almost four years. My only issue is when I still have my period when I have to put the new ring in. Sometimes the ring will come out with the tampon (sorry if TMI!!) so I just pay close attention to that.
