Okay so I've been using NuvaRing for a little over four months now. Previously I was on the pill for years. While on the pill I frequently had irregular periods. The first month on NuvaRing my period was one day late from when I took the ring out. The second and third month my period started immediately the day I was due to take it out, before I actually took the ring out. This month, however, I am currently 5 days late. I was supposed to take it out saturday (today is wednesday) but I forgot and kept it in until sunday. I have symptoms of my period (cramps, bloating) but no actual period. I have regular sex with my boyfriend and no other methods of protection are used. Am I still just adjusting to NuvaRing and this is normal, or is there a chance I could actually be pregnant? I'm just freaking out.
You don't have to start right away, in fact that's unusual. Its usually the 3 or 4 day. Put the new one in in 6 days so you stay on schedule. Its no big deal if you don't have a period every month. If you're using the ring correctly you have less then a 1% chance of pregnancy.
