What are my chances of being pregnant if I didn't put my nuva ring back in and I just had my period about a week or 2 ago
How long did you keep the Nuva Ring out for? According to the information, you shouldn't leave it out longer than 3 hours. If you do, it may mess up your cycle and you may need to use another form of birth control (like a condom) until your cycle is regular again. Here is what I found :
***The NuvaRing vaginal ring will not prevent pregnancy if you wear it only during intercourse. You must wear the ring for 3 full weeks, followed by 1 full week without a ring. The timing of ring insertion and removal is very important for this medicine to be effective as a form of birth control.
The ring does not need to be removed during sexual intercourse. If the ring is bothersome, you may remove it, rinse it with warm water, and reinsert it after intercourse. Do not leave the ring out for longer than 3 hours.***
