I found there was sort of a ‘ledge’ that it could rest on (my friend who recommended it to me told me this) once I figured that out it hung out quite nicely but was never really too in there, I never had to go searching for it.

I used to have the Nuvaring and I absolutely loved how convenient it was.  Mine sat pretty low, but never fell out save for one time during sex.  We had just finished and I looked at my Fiance and thought he was wearing a condom because I could see a ring around the base of his.. ahem.  I thought that was strange because we don’t use condoms.  Nope, he was just wearing my Nuvaring! Bahahah.  We had a good laugh at our game of “ring toss” 

Other than that I never had any issues with it sitting low.  I eventually had to switch because the hormone levels weren’t right for me.  I went crazy, like crazy crazy.  But I so wish they worked for me, becuase I did really like it.

I used the Nuva Ring for three years and absolutely loved it. I only switched because of financial reasons. Sometimes mine would sit really low but other times when it was time for me to take the ring out it’d be waaaaay up there. I never had it fall out. It came out a few times during sex but I just rinsed it off and put it back in. I’d give it a try for at least 3 months before you decide to switch to something else.

@meke:  so I have had Nuva Ring in for almost 2 weeks. It went in easily and I haven’t noticed it at all. The only thing I’m noticing is that I cry at the drop of a hat. I am not a crier but everything is making me cry. I will admit, it could be just life right now making me do emotional (my sister had her first baby last week and our mom died in august so it’s been emotional, my company is in turmoil and I will most likely be laid off in the next few weeks etc). I hope it’s just me and not the Nuva Ring or I’ll have to try something else!

I use it, and I find that doing kegals helps a lot with keeping it in place.

They’re not hard – you can do them once a day, wherever you are, and it will strengthen things down there.

I’ve used the ring for about 6 years now.  According to my doctor, if it’s in there – no matter how low- it’s doing what it needs to be doing.  I’ve had a few annoying rings over the years that would not stay up no matter what I did, but they were very rare.  As long as it isn’t bugging you it’s probably fine.

I’ve been on the NuvaRing for almost 2 years now.  I usually have issues with mine for the first few hours of it being in with it slipping down, but if you push it up far enough there is a muscle that it will sit behind.  It takes a while to figure it out, but if it doesn’t cause pain or discomfort when it sits so low then you’re fine.   When mine slips too low, I feel it and it hurts.

@meke:  I just took my first ring out yesterday and I was so glad to take it out. i was a total bitch for about 3 dates preceding the day it was going to come out. A few hours after I took it out yesterday, I already noticed a difference and today I’m not bitchy or PMSy at all.

i had no trouble with his it fit or felt while it was in. If it weren’t for the emotional issues I would continue using it.

@lizardloo: said.  My doctor also told me it doesn’t matter where it sits, it’ll do what it needs to.  So as long as you aren’t uncomfortable it should be fine.

I found it only hurt on the odd occasion when DH would get caught in it and accidentally pull it out.  That’s an easy fix though.

I had a lot of trouble with it with my SO. I had used it with exes before with no problems. SO is about 7-8″ and fairly thick and it actually gets stuck too far up because it has nowhere to go…like in my actual cervical opening and it is SO PAINFUL. I had to pull it out.
