There have been a few cases of the vaginal ring becoming attached to the vaginal wall, making ring removal difficult. If removal is difficult leave it where it is and make an appointment to see your doctor.
my sister was not able to remove the estring and the doctors (3)could not remove it after causing a lot of pain. She now has to have an MRI and go into JHH to surgically have it removed. Has anyone else been through this?
