Do you have to store the ring in the refrigerator?

No. Store your unused rings at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.

The vaginal ring is a small, flexible ring a woman inserts into her vagina once a month to prevent pregnancy. It’s left in place for three weeks and taken out for the remaining week each month. The vaginal ring is commonly called NuvaRing, its brand name.
