Is it a problem if I'm getting vaginal discharge from the ring?
updated over 3 years ago

The extra discharge you are experiencing from using the ring is probably normal. After a couple of cycles, this discharge may go back to normal.

Also, the ring may protect you from a bacterial infection that can occur in the vagina called bacterial vaginosis (BV).

If you’re concerned that the vaginal discharge that you’re experiencing may be caused by an infection, visit your health care provider.

Still not working?

If it sticks around and really bothers you, think about something you don’t insert in your vagina. You could try the pill or patch (if you like regular periods), or the shot (if you don’t mind irregular or nonexistent periods).
