I just recently got on the nuvaring, and i noticed today that it is not very far inside me, like only a few centimeters. Will this be a problem when it comes to intercourse? or is it possible it will just fall out?

There isn't a way to know something like that ahead of time, unfortunately. Usually the ring isn't a problem when it comes to intercourse, but for some people it does occasionally shift or become uncomfortable, and it can be dislodged enough to come out of the vagina entirely.

Just to check in, did your prescribing physician show you how to insert it? In other words, did they sit with you and show you how, then do something like have you put it in yourself and check it for you to be sure you had the hang of it?
