I just went through my first month on the ring but I have one question. I was told to leave the ring in for 3 weeks and have a ring free week (7days). I took out my ring on a Tuesday and got my period on that next sunday, so 5 days after taking out the ring. Can I put a new ring in the day I got my period to be protected right away even though that would mean having a 5 day ring free "week" instead of a 7 day week?
And for future refrence, if when I take my ring out for my ring free week and get my period sooner than 5 days can I still put in a new ring the first day of my period? Or do I really have to wait the full 7 days before putting in a new ring? I just want to be protected.
