Forgot to remove Nuvaring for day 1 bedikah

9 May, 2013


I removed the nuvaring for my hefsek tahara and for the moch dochuk, which were clear.

I forgot to remove for the bedikah on the first day which I did and was also clear.

I am now on day 6 – tomorrow I would be going to the mikvah. I have been clear all along.

Is the fact that I forgot to remove the ring for the first bedikah a problem?

If I remove the ring for the bedikah on the 7th day, can I still go to the mikva on time?


B'diavad (after the fact), your day 1 bedikah is valid even though you did not remove the Nuvaring prior to performing the bedikah.

You should make sure to remove the Nuvaring for your day 7 bedikah. Assuming your day 7 bedikah is acceptable, you may immerse as scheduled.
