I had a DELIGHTFUL yeast infection last week, which I treated with hydrogen peroxide as I had in the past. I currently use a NuvaRing. I took it out when I douched and kept it out for ten-fifteen minutes afterward until everything "soaked up". I know hydrogen peroxide is normally occurring in a vagina, but I'm not sure if I "killed" it. That's why I kept it out, waited for it to absorb.
I called the company and they suggested I use alternative protection, just in case. I'm cool with that, but I started spotting and I'm curious if that has something to do with the hydrogen peroxide killing the ring or because I took it out ten minutes a day for five days. I just had my period, I don't want it again! Plus, if the ring is dead, I don't want to be off it an entire month. I had terrible spotting for three months when I first put it in two years ago. I'd like to not relive that!
Anyone insight or experience with this would be appreciated!!
