The ring is very uncomfortable for both me and my Boyfriend during sex...to the point were my boyfriend loses his erection anytime we try and have sex. Can i take the nuvaring out to have sex then put it back in after and still be protected. Two different pharmacist, and a few people who have used the nuvaring in the past have said yes but my Dr. said no. I don't really know who to believe.
It is said that you can remove the ring for up to 3 hours before you have to re-insert it for protection. I normally dont take out my Ring during intercourse; but you may want to. The most important thing is to wash it before re-inserting it and to put it back BEFORE the 3 hours is up! If not, you need to have a back up method of birth controll for a week until you are fully protected again
