You were not protected at all. This is not a barrier method (like condoms which stop sperm from coming into a woman's reproductive system there by preventing pregnancy). It is a delivery system of hormones. Did you not read the instructions? You have to keep the ring in for seven days continuously before you are safe to have unprotected sex. You may take the ring out for up to 3 hours per 24 hour period if the ring is uncomfortable during sex. If you leave it out longer than 3 hours, you are no longer protected and need to use back up protection for seven days again (leaving the ring in). If the ring is uncomfortable for you to wear 24 hours a day then perhaps it is not the best method for you. Maybe you should think about pills or the patch or perhaps Depo injections or Nexplanon implant which when done in the first five days of your period, you can be protected right away.
