Cleaning nuvaring?

So I posted a little while about getting the nuvaring. I'm using it now and it's great so far. It's a little awkward to insert, but that's alright. The little squishy ring just doesn't want to go in sometimes lol. But I just remember another fold to try, sooo maybe that will work better. Anyways I'm currently on my period, and I inserted the ring on Day 1. That means I am fully protected and can have sex without another BC method right? (Monogamous relationship, no VDs.)

Also I don't know if anyone else has experienced this but when I was taking out my menstrual cup today I noticed that my vagina was very very hot. Is this a sign of inflamation, yeast infection, perhaps? (Please say it isn't!) Also I was wondering for those that use nuva rings, is it alright to wipe it down with rubbing alcohol, rinse with water and reinsert? Will that mess with the hormones? I was just wondering because I don't think it sounds very good to leave a plastic ring inside me and never clean it, at least with water. Thanks in advance for the advice! :)
