Customer Question

Hello. I instered my nuvaring two weeks ago, woke up this morning with my period. I checked for the ring and it's not there. I feel like I would of have felt fall out and am now worried it's on my bladder.

Customer: No pain, I get my period monthly but the ring lightens them. Now I have a more regular flow and just feel the regular period tenderness around my overies
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr David replied 10 months ago.

you should see your gyn doctor and get a gyn examination

sometimes it can be very difficult to examine your own cervix to tell if the Nuvaring is there

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok I've used nuvaring on and off for four years and have never had this problem. Is it possible to not feel it come out?
Expert:  Dr David replied 10 months ago.

it would be very very very unlikely that you didn't feel it come out

but there is a small chance it could have.

if you had heavy periods

it could have come out in blood and you may not have seen it.
