can i take it out during sex, and re-apply immadeatly afterwords? or just take it out every other day & clean it then re- apply?
What did your doctor tell you?
The time you need to wait will depend on what day of your cycle you inserted the ring.You may need to wait for 7 days before you are protected from pregnancy - check with your doctor if you are unsure.
The NuvaRing does not need to be removed during sexual intercourse. Neither partner should be able to feel the NuvaRing when it is in place. If the NuvaRing is bothersome, you may remove it, rinse it with warm water, and reinsert it after intercourse. Do not leave the NuvaRing out for longer than 3 hours.
There is no need to take the ring out every other day and clean it - you may reduce its effectiveness by doing this.
