I have been on the nuva ring for quite a few months now. And I was told a couple times that on your week off you can leave it in and not bleed. Well last month I forgot to take it out until half way through that week. So I left it in. After I put my new ring in I was fine for a week, but the second week I started bleeding and it's gone up to bleeding for 2 weeks. And I'm supposed to take my ring out tomorrow. I'd call and set up an appointment with my women's health doctor but they only schedu a month ahead of time.
