I started using the NuvaRing a little over a month ago, Im 16 so yes im sexually active. Me and my boyfriend do not use the "pull out" method, nor do we use a condom. My doctor told me that the NuvaRing does prevent pregnancy if used right, but im scared that I did not insert the ring far enough into my vagina for it to be effective. Does it matter how far it is inserted?
No, it doesnt matter. You just need it far enough in that it doest fall out.

NuvaRing - I inserted the ring 12 hours late on my second cycle. Am I protected on the first 7 days?
