Nuva ring slipped out for over 12 hours

Patient

Q: I have been using the nuva ring continuously for over a year. Tonight i realized that my ring had fallen out this morning, over 12 hours ago. what should i do?

Symptoms:  Nuva ring fell out
Doctor

A:   Hello,
If you are in the mid cycle and your NUVA RING has slipped out for more than 12 hrs , but there hasn't been initiation of any withdrawal bleed , then you may continue to use it for the remaining days of the cycle i.e till the 21st day and then remove it allowing the withdrawal to be initiated.
I hope i have answered your query in detail,
wishing you good health,
regards
