What should I do if the birth control ring falls out by accident?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 11/04/2019

When this happens, the woman should wash the birth control ring with water and put it back in her vagina.

If the vaginal ring has spent more than three hours outside the woman's body, an additional contraceptive method must be used for the next 7 days.
