This is my first time using birth control. I put the nuvaring in on the first day of my last cycle, and my doctor said I should take it out after three weeks to have my period, but that is going to be my honeymoon week! Even though it's only the first cycle, would it be ok to leave it in for four weeks and then put the new ring in to skip the cycle altogether?
Yes it is. Its not even certain we need to have periods when on hormonal contraception. You may get some spotting since it is your first cycle.
