Nuvaring...cleaning question.

Do you think it would be ok to take out the ring and wash it with soap (of course making sure it's rinsed off well before putting back in) in the shower? I read that it can help reduce the possible yeast infections. I would use ivory soap.

Re: Nuvaring...cleaning question.

I do, just make sure the water isn't too hot as it isn't great for it. But maybe 2 times a week I take it out and then wash it.
