... takes it out. This time she put the ring in about 3 days late and took out the ring last Friday. It is now Tuesday and she still doesn't have a period. We had unprotected sex about a week and a half AFTER she put the ring in and then again a day AFTER she took it out. I did not ejaculate inside of her either time at all. Is she right to be so worried her period still hasn't started?
Late nuvaring insertion, late period?
Added 21 Apr 2015:
First part got cut off. It was supposed to say "my gf has been on the nubaring for about 5 years and has always had a pretty regular period. She puts it in on time and about 3-4 days later she has her period."
Putting the ring in late, means that she is not protected until she's had the ring in for a week. How long did she have it in before she took it out this time? She is only protected when she takes it out if she's had it in for 3 weeks, and then only for 7 days. How long has she had it out? If she took it out only a day or so ago, she shouldn't worry yet, she has the whole week. Be sure to remind her when its time to put it in. The manufacturer had an app to remind her, she can get it at nuvaring.com
