Removed NuvaRing one week early?

- nuvaring, pregnancy
I misread my calendar and took my NuvaRing out a week early. I was supposed to remove it on the eighth of November, but removed it the first instead. That same night (the first, about 7 hours later) I had sex. My boyfriend used a condom both times we had sex, but I still have a bit of nervousness. The condom broke the first time, but he replaced it before we continued/he ejaculated.
While I know there is a very little chance of anything having happened, I wanted to know if anyone has had experience with this and could tell me what to expect as far as my period/other early withdrawal symptoms. Should I take Plan B?

You will get your period, because the way our body functions is that when the hormone level drops we bleed. So when we use hormonal birth control the same thing happens. Since you're off on the calender anyway I'd say let your period come, then put the ring in after a week, which would have been when you would have had it out. Use a condom until its back in a week. Now, the plan B thing. I really don't like it, its not a magic potion and really doesn't help much more then the average risk of pregnancy with no birth control. We can't know if you were still protected when you took the ring out. You did use a condom, so you were protected by that. I think you're pretty safe, but I'm not a young girl, and don't have to worry about an unwanted pregnancy. If you do decide all things considered to use plan B, be prepared for side effects of nausea and sore breasts and a late period.
