Does Nuvaring Still Prevent Pregnancy if a Man Finishes Inside Of You?


Official Answer Medically reviewed by Last updated on Oct 27, 2020.

Yes, NuvaRing should prevent pregnancy even if you don't use any other precautions, if you have accurately used the NuvaRing according to Doctors instructions.

How should I use NuvaRing?

Use NuvaRing exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not use the medication in larger amounts, or use it for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

NuvaRing comes with patient instructions for safe and effective use. Follow these directions carefully. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

Your doctor will tell which day of your menstrual cycle to insert the first vaginal ring you use. During the first 7 days of using your first vaginal ring, you may need to use back-up birth control, such as condoms or a spermicide. Follow your doctor's instructions.

The NuvaRing vaginal ring should be left in place for 3 full weeks. Remove the NuvaRing after 3 weeks, on the same day of the week it was inserted at about the same time of day. Allow 1 full week to pass before inserting the new ring.

Your period should start during the week you do not wear a vaginal ring. Insert the new ring on the same day of the week it was inserted in the last cycle, even if your menstrual period has not ended yet.
The NuvaRing vaginal ring will not prevent pregnancy if you wear it only during intercourse. You must wear the NuvaRing 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 NuvaRing does not need to be removed during sexual intercourse. Neither partner should be able to feel the NuvaRing when it is in place. If the NuvaRing is bothersome, you may remove it, rinse it with warm water, and reinsert it after intercourse. Do not leave the NuvaRing out for longer than 3 hours.

To dispose of a used vaginal ring, place it in the foil pouch it came in and throw it away where children and pets cannot get to it. Do not flush the NuvaRing down a toilet.

Have regular physical exams and self-examine your breasts for lumps on a monthly basis while using estradiol vaginal.

thank you so much for getting back so quickly... but would it increase the chances of me getting pregnant? or is it just not likely?

If you have used the Nuva Ring probably then no you shouldn't become pregnant.

Sorry, that was meant to be "if you have used the Nuva Ring properly ... "

What if I had unprotected sex the Saturday before I put the nuva ring back in? Is there still a possibility of pregnancy?

I have a question. So, I've been on the Mirena birth control until Friday (May 9th 2014) and I had it taken out by my OBG and she suggest to have me on Nuvaring. So I ended up using that. Today, my boyfriend and I had sex and he accidentally came in me. I was just wondering with my period being irregular and being on the Mirena and then switching to Nuvaring, could I get pregnant? Because I'm slightly worried. I know washing out or douching isn't going to help but I did it anyway...

Even though you may have used it, you aren't entirely protected depending on how dialated your cervix was (how pushed back it was) can effect it. If the NuvaRing came out or you took it out during intercourse then put it back in and felt period symptoms, then you're in danger of being pregnant. I'd talk to your Gyn on your next check up or order of NuvaRing.
