Insteads and nuvaring?

Hey all! :) So I am probably going to go get a prescription for a nuvaring tomorrow. I really did want to go with the paraguard IUD, because it would last forever, be nonhormonal, and cheaper in the long run (with insurance), but I don't have a car and there's no hospital in my town to do the procedure, so I figured I would give nuvarings a try. Anyways I was wondering if anyone has used nuvarings with insteads before? If I understand the instructions correctly you're supposed to put the nuvaring in on the first day of your period. I really like using insteads for intercourse during my period, so I was just wondering if an instead and a nuvaring could be used at the same time... TIA! :)

(This is kind of x-posted to vagina_pagina.)

Post edit: I got my nuva ring today and popped it in since it was the first day of my period. It's working fine alongside my huge fleurcup so I'll think I'll give it a go with the instead and it should be fine. My nuva ring was $72 at CVS, and $20 with copay.
