Well, during intercourse sometimes it gets uncomfortable for me so my husband and I take it out. Somehow our dog got it and ate it without us knowing during sex! (the dog is okay, found it the next day when he went to potty) I had only had it in for two weeks, starting the third the next day. My doc said to get a new one and insert it asap. I was without one from around 9 pm that night till around 5 the next evening. We have been having sex without a backup method every since. I am due to take this one out on Monday... what are the chances of pregnancy?
Do not worry you should have full contraceptive cover as you have followed the instructions of your doctor and used a new ring.
"... During Week 3: If NuvaRing® slips out of the vagina for more than three continuous hours during the 3rd week of the three-week use period, throw the ring away and choose one of the following two options.
Insert a new ring immediately. Inserting a new ring will start the next three-week use period. You may not experience a period from your previous cycle. However, breakthrough spotting or bleeding may occur... "
