The female urethral play ring is 3 to 5 cm in diameter, must be pinched, and then slipped into the vagina. Like a hygienic tampon, it should be inserted as deep as possible into the vagina, but its position does not matter in itself.
What is important is that he holds, and that the woman does not feel it. It stays in place exactly 3 weeks and then removed on the same day of the week as the laying.It is after three weeks that the ring is removed. After 7 days without a ring, during which the rules occur, the woman puts a new ring.
In practice if the ring was laid on a Monday, it will be removed 3 weeks later, a Monday, and a new ring will be placed 7 days after the withdrawal of the previous one, always a Monday.
The ring can also be inserted between the 2nd and 5th day of your period, but in this case you must use condoms for the first 7 days. It has efficiency comparable to that of the combined pill, with extra security: it is always worn on you, without having to think about it, for three weeks.

He may be expelled after sexual intercourse, for example. If it is expelled, you must put it back in place. On the other hand, if he has been expelled for more than 3 hours, you must take the same precautions as after a missed pill above 12 hours.

It cannot be used by women for whom the combined pill is contraindicated, and it is sometimes embarrassing during intercourse.The vaginal ring or contraceptive ring is a hormonal contraceptive that is placed in the vagina. Does it deliver hormones? How to put it and what are its advantages?
In contraception, every woman has her preference. Hormonal contraceptives include the pill combined or micro-progestin, the implant, the intrauterine system (IUS) hormonal or hormonal IUD, the contraceptive patch and the ring. The latter has a circular shape, measuring less than six centimeters in diameter and is placed at the bottom of the vagina. It is renewed every month, which avoids having to think about it every day. It contains hormone capsules estrogen and progestin that will gradually open and release their contents, thanks to the heat and humidity of the vagina.
The vaginal ring, how does it work?
Conversely, mechanical contraceptives do not contain hormones. This is a Copper Intrauterine Device or less effective barrier methods: the condom, male or female, which also has the advantage of protecting against sexually transmitted infections, the diaphragm and the cervical cape. More radical, permanent contraception can also be considered. These are vasectomy for men and tubal ligation or the method that blocks the tubes for women. Know that to choose the contraception that best suits your needs and your desires, it is important to talk to your doctor or midwife who can guide you in this decision by explaining the advantages and disadvantages of different methods.

It contains a combination of hormones estrogen and progestin.
What is the vaginal ring made of?
It is a transparent ring, thin and flexible of 5 centimeters in diameter. It is a hormonal method that involves absorbing the hormones contained in a combined pill through the vaginal wall, not through the digestive tract like the pill or through the skin like the contraceptive patch. The ring releases hormones that prevent ovulation and thicken the cervix.
How it works?
It must be placed in the vagina as high as possible: it slips like a tampon. If you do not feel it, it is because it is good and is well placed. In the heat of the body, the hormones are diffused through the vaginal wall and pass into the blood.
It must be put on the 1st day of the rules to have maximum efficiency, the same ring remains in place for 3 consecutive weeks. Then, after 3 weeks, you remove it and throw it away.You do not put anything for 7 days, and then appear your period,the contraceptive action of your ring continues to act during these 7 days.
On the 8th day, you replace a new ring for 3 weeks and so on. You can remove it during your sex but you can remove it for up to 3 hours. Before replacing it, rinse it with cold water never with hot water.
He may be deported after intercourse, for example. If it is expelled, it must be put back in place. On the other hand, if he has been expelled for more than 3 hours, you must take the same precautions as after a missed pill above 12 hours.Like any method of contraception where there is manipulation, there is a risk of misuse.
Where to buy it?
You buy it in a pharmacy with a medical prescription you also get a refund for this contraceptive): 39 to 40 $ box of 3 rings. Under 21 pay between 30 and 31 $. Some mutuals reimburse between $30 and $ 40 per year as part of the supplementary insurance. The rings must be used within 4 months after their purchase in a pharmacy. If it’s not available there, you can purchase some from Lustplugs.
You only think about it twice a month (to put it on and take it out), so you are quiet for 3 weeks unlike the pill or the patch.Its contraceptive effectiveness is guaranteed even in case of vomiting or diarrhea.
You place it yourself; you do not need a gynecologist to place it.There may be unwanted effects as with all other hormonal contraceptives.Sometimes the partners feel the contact of the ring during their sexual intercourse, so the vaginal ring sometimes interferes with sexuality.
Do not forget to remove it after 3 weeks because it no longer diffuses hormones; if you forget to change it beyond 3 weeks, its effectiveness is no longer guaranteed. Replace it as soon as you remember. In this case, it is best to seek advice from your doctor or a family planning center and in the meantime you should use a condom.
