Hey, So I just started using the Nuva Ring today. I inserted it on my period. I have a couple questions. Is it necessary to take it out and clean it? Because I imagine it has blood on it, and I don't want it to start smelling or something. Or should I just leave it alone? Along similar lines, when I take a shower tomorrow morning, is it okay for me to clean my vagina with my finger/ the hot shower water without removing the ring? I have read stuff about hot water compromising effectiveness. Thoughts?
