I was taking ocella (birth control pill) for 8 days and I wanted to start the nuva ring my gynecologist said to stop the pill and insert the ring on the 9th day, should I take out the ring on the 21st day?
MadZmama... BC pills are absorbed thru your gastric system and have a lifespan of so many hours which is why you need to repeat the pill daily for a continual level in your system. The Nuvaring releases a low dose continually into your system and by its last day of the ring the BC pills are long gone. To keep your body on a regular pattern for BC I'd put the ring in the day you stop your BC pills then don't take ring out until it's the day when you are to replace it. If you still feel confused always call the doctors nurse since they are the ones who deal with these patient issues on a regular basis.
Remember above all your safety is your number one concern.
