I've been using nuvaring for a week now, and I find that it doesn't exactly stay up in my vagina. It doesn't fall out, it just lingers near the bottom, and I don't feel it. My question is, should I keep pushing it furthur up everday or is it fine where it is?

I didn't find any topics about this specific problem, so I'm sorry if I overlooked any.

I have been using the Nuvaring for over a year. At first, the ring can be a bit challenging in "getting up there."

I would recommend that you see your gynocologist so they can show you exactly how to insert it. But, if you want to rely on my advise, here it is...

If you have a problem with inserting it, you might want to lay down on the bed and pull your legs apart during application. Sometimes that position can give you a little more room for insertion. I generally use my right pointer finger to push the ring up into place. It is the same concept as a tampon, where when you don't feel anything, it is generally in the right place. If you are still having a hard time pushing it up there, it might be good to use lubrication.

I hope this helps!
