... pains which i thought were not normal, so I took out the ring. I thought that I would get my period a couple of days after I took it out, so I assumed it would be safe to have unprotected sex. How probable is it that I am pregnant?
Do you know what is said about assumptions? I don't understand why you girls don't read directions when its something this important. You should not have taken it out, if you were going to have breakthru bleeding it will happen with it in. Once you start them you stay on the 3 week on 1 week off schedule. Why in the world would you think you were safe, since unless you start the ring on the first day of your period, you aren't safe the first week. And then you have to be using it to be safe. Do you understand how these things work? Do you know how your body works?
You were not protected. It takes a week to begin working in the first place and once it is out longer than 3 hours it no longer protects. It doesnt "hold" you for a few days-it just doesnt work that way. If you had read the directions fully, you should have known that. If you wear the ring 3 weeks then take it out the 4th week, you should get your period, but using it only a few days would not bring on your period when you took it out because it never really got a chance to work. Your chances for pregnancy are the same as if you had used nothing.
