Doctor :   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 ini tiation 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.
