So it's my first month of nuvaring and about a week in a half before i am supposed to take out the ring, i started bleeding. I'm supposed to take out the ring tomorrow and still have not stopped bleeding. Is this a normal side effect because my body is just getting used to the prescription or should I call my doctor?
Sorry your question hasn't been answered earlier.
You are correct, breakthrough bleeding such as yours is common with Nuva Ring especially when it is first started. It may take a couple of cycles for your body to adjust to the hormones and for the bleeding to settle. You should continue to use the ring as directed.
If you are concerned talk to your doctor.
