- Wash and dry your hands before removing the ring from the pouch. The ring becomes slippery when wet, so make sure your hands are dry.
- To insert the ring, choose a comfortable position, such as lying down, squatting, or standing with one leg up. Hold the ring between your thumb and index finger and press the opposite sides of the ring together. Gently insert and push the folded ring into the vagina as far as comfortably possible. The exact position of the ring is the vagina is not important for it to work.
- Rarely, some women have inserted the ring into the bladder by mistake. Do not insert the ring into your bladder. Insert the ring into the vagina.
- You may not feel the ring once it is in place. If you feel discomfort, the ring is probably not inserted far enough in your vagina. Use your finger to gently push the ring further into your vagina. There is no danger in the ring being pushed too far up the vagina or getting lost. It can be inserted only as far as the end of the vagina. The cervix will block it from going any further.
- The ring should not interfere with sexual intercourse.
- Some women have experienced moving or gliding of the ring within the vagina due to bowel movements, straining, constipation, or coughing. If this occurs, push it back into place with your finger.
- After insertion, the ring should be left in place for 3 weeks (21 days) and then removed. It should be removed at about the same time and on the same day of the week that it was inserted. To remove the ring, wash and dry your hands thoroughly. Find a comfortable position, either standing, squatting, or lying down. Loop your finger through the ring and gently pull it out. Discard the used ring in the trash container. Do not flush it down the toilet.
- After removing the ring, wait 7 days and then insert a new ring. The new ring should be inserted at about the same time and on the same day of the week as it was inserted in the last cycle.
- If the ring is removed or falls out of the vagina and remains out for less than 3 hours, rinse the ring with lukewarm water and reinsert it. No other contraceptive measures are necessary.
- If the ring is removed or falls out of the vagina and remains out for more than 3 hours, rinse the ring with lukewarm water and reinsert it. In this case, you may not be adequately protected from pregnancy. You must use an additional form of birth control (eg, male condoms, spermicide) until the ring has been in place for 7 days in a row.
- If the ring is removed or falls out and is lost, or if the ring becomes disconnected at the joint, you must insert a new ring and use it on the same schedule as you would have used the lost or disconnected ring.
- If you miss inserting the new ring on the scheduled day, insert it as soon as you remember. You must use a backup form of birth control until the new ring has been in place for 7 days. If you are not sure what to do if you miss inserting the new ring on the scheduled day, use an extra form of birth control (eg, condoms) and talk with your doctor.
