Patient : I am going on a backpacking trip through Italy in August with my boyfriend for a month. I am currently using the Nuva Ring. To be inline with my cycle, I will have to bring along a Nuva Ring replacement for the last four days of my trip. I am worried about what will happen to the Nuva Ring in a hot backpack in 30C weather. I still have a few Alesse pills from when I used to take the pill, can I bring those for the last four days of my trip instead of inserting a new ring?
