Does the ring ever fall out?

The ring hardly ever falls out—especially in younger women who haven’t had children. But if it does slip out, you can just rinse it off with cool water and reinsert it. If it’s been out more than a few hours (or you’re not sure how long), make sure to use backup method, like a condom or internal condom, for the next 7 days.
