Customer Question

Hi, i dont have easy access to a dr. as I am traveling out of my country. I got what I thought was a yeast infection (im 30 and have several in the past) and I went and got a 3 day cream from a pharmacy. the itching has gone down but now my vagina is swollen and I can barely get my nuvaring in. should I be concerned or wait it out?

It may take several more days for the swelling to decrease. An ice pack can help. Do not retreat as overtreatment can make the symptoms worse. It is fine to use the Nuvaring.
