Okay so I took my nuvaring about a week early because I started bleeding really heavily (not knowing it was normal the first few months). I had my period and I reinserted the new nuvaring 7 days later at the same time. My husband and I had sex the 4th day after I reinserted the new ring. Am I protected? This is currently my third month on it. I began it in April! Please help I'm freaking out. I have an 8 month old and I am not ready for another.
You never alter your birth control schedule for bleeding. Its not your period if you have the ring in its break thru bleeding. I really wish you'd asked before you took it out. I would have told you not to take it out early. Your protection was probably compromised and you should wait 7 days before unprotected sex.
