  • Yes you can use tampons without risk of it falling out. I used Nuva Ring after DD1 was born and used tampons also. Never had any problems. Although I usually got my period the week it was out, but sometimes it lasted until it was back in.

  • Yeah, you should have your period when the ring is out but if it goes over it is ok to use one just make sure when you take the tampon out that the ring doesn't come with it, but it shouldn't!
