Can the ring get lost in my vagina?

No. The vagina is a closed pouch and doesn’t connect to the rest of the belly, so things (other than semen, bacteria, and other really, really, really small things) put in the vagina can’t travel to some other part of the body. There is no place for a tampon or a ring to go—they just sit right where you put them.
