NUVARING concerns while Traveling, Swimming,bathing or using hot tubs..........

I was wondering if anyone on Nuvaring has had experience with taking an extra Nuvaring with them in their carry on bag on an airplane......I know you are suppose to keep it cool and out of hot temperatures I worry about being stuck on an airplane with no air conditioning I'm going to Mexico in the next month or so and this has happened before.......... IE waitng for the gate or takeoff.........has anyone used a cool pack? what brand?

Also has anyone had problems with swimming, using hot tubs or taking a bath with NUVARING coming out or losing effectiveness because of the hot water tempertures. I know it is far up inside you that the water shouldn't effect it but I'm concerned that it could get wet alittle. So far I just take NUVARING out while taking a bath but I'm sick of being worried and maybe it really isn't necessary.......

I've been on NUVARING for 2 months and don't want to be parnoid on vacation any suggestions would be helpful........

I'm from Canada and had 6 nuva rings in my bag when i moved to the united states and had no problems. I take baths in it, swim with it, shower etc and well, I ain't pregnant
