I took the ring out on Sunday morning and thought I would get my period a day or so later. It is thursday evening and still no period- not sure if I should be concerned about pregnancy! Do I insert another ring on Sunday without getting a period? I would take a pregnancy test first just to be sure...
The vaginal ring is a form of female contraception. The vaginal ring is inserted into the vagina on the first day of a woman’s menstrual cycle and stays in place for three weeks in a row and is then removed while the woman has her period.
Your period should start during the week you do not wear a vaginal ring.
Some women miss periods on hormonal birth control, even when they are not
pregnant. When used correctly the chance of getting pregnant with a vaginal ring is less than 1%.
Consider the possibility that you may be pregnant if:
You miss a period and the was out for more than 3 hours during the 3 weeks of ring use.
You miss a period and waited longer than 1 week to insert a new ring.
You have followed the instructions and you miss 2 periods in a row.
You have left ring in place for longer than 4 weeks.
If you suspect you may be pregnant do not insert another ring. See your doctor as soon as possible.
i had that question i called my doctor to ask about it because it was making me worry about. i started at the beginning of last month and my doctor told me that your body is still getting used to the type of hormones in it. it took me like 3 or 4 days before i actually started. my doctor told me to keep a pattern and after a while you would get used to it and you should start right before you take it out and that you should put in no matter what even if you are still on your period because thats what it says in the package and what my doctor told me. hope that helps. :)

I have been on the Nuva ring for about two months! I only took it out once with my boyfriend this was the month of Feb. But o got my cycle that month. I'm now in the month of March just about he end of March and I changed my ring this month of the 23 of the month and now I'm not getting my period and we been active on March 11, 2015 and I know he handled his business as far as making sure nothing when through. The thing is when I took out the ring it had a little red spotting and when I put a new one in evrrtbibg was okay!! I still don't have my period someone help!! I don't think I'm prego already!!
I've been on NV for over a year now, this is my second go around with it after having my second child. I have been regular with my periods until recent. Typically take it out and 1-2 days later I would start or I start spotting right away. Took it out on Friday and today is Wednesday and I still have not started or had any spotting. A little worried about the possibility of pregnancy. Doc apt on Friday.
