What if I have a lot of vaginal discharge?

The extra discharge you are experiencing from using the ring is probably normal. It should decrease after a few months. It may also be the ring protecting you from an infection called bacterial vaginosis.
If you are still worried, talk with a health care provider. Still not working? If the discharge lasts more than a few months and you really do not like it, think about using a different method. You could try the pill, patch, or the injectable. The pill and patch are good if you want regular periods. If you do not mind an irregular or nonexistent period, then the injectable may be a good idea.
Try a different method: Patch, Pill, injectable.
