Hi I inserted nuvaring on the first day of my period as I was prescribed. However I was uncomfortable using it so I removed it after 6 days meanwhile I was having my period with unusual heavy bleeding. So now my period is almost over, will I get my period once again now since it always comes after removing the ring or what? was it ok to remove the ring without finishing the 3 weeks cycle?
Your hormones are out of kilter at the moment so it is difficult to predict what will happen. It is likely you have some degree of spotting until your hormones settle.
It was OK to remove the ring because it was uncomfortable but you should have tried to reinsert it. It probably wasn't quite in the right place. Because the ring has been removed for more than 3 hours all contraceptive cover has been lost.
If you want to try again insert another ring now or when your period starts again. Either way you should wait for 7 days until you have protection from pregnancy again.
If you are still unsure what to do, call your doctor.
