Did you start the ring on the first day of your period? If so then you should have been protected. If you start on days 2-5 then you should use a back up method for the first seven days then you are considered protected. When the ring is removed three weeks later you should usually start menstruating the 2nd or 3rd day but it may be later than that and then the ring should go back in after one week on the same day of the week that it was inserted on the previous cycle whether or not you are still bleeding. You can take a pregnancy test if you are worried or if you didnt follow the correct insertion instructions. If it is negative then go ahead and insert a new ring on the day you are supposed to. It may just be that you are a little late in starting. Sometimes worry can make you late. If you miss two periods in a row then you should see your Dr.
