thank you... i plan on taking it out during intercourse & then re applying it. but i wont take it out to clean it... i will just clean it when i take it out for intercourse.
i inserted it on the 7th day after i started my period, so i need to wait 7 days before it will be effective at preventing pregnancy?
That is correct - you will need to wait for 7 days before it stops a pregnancy.
