My wife used nuvaring for about 8 months. On her last 4 week cycle, she took the ring out as usual at the beginning of the fourth week and we continued with unprotected sex for that week (as you are protected for the ring-free week). When it was time to put a new ring in she decided that she should try to go without the ring to see if it would help with her feelings of depression. So we decided to start using condoms and be off the birth control. Our question is could she have gotten pregnant on that last ring free week before she decided to stay of the ring? It's been about 2 weeks since she decided not to use the ring and she felt some cramping and moodiness the last two days. Thanks for any help to us.
