I started using NR on the first day of my period on May 20th. I have been spotting everyday since I put the ring in so I would insert my finger in my vagina to clean out the spotting whenever I shower. I took it out on June 10th, the 3 week mark, and started getting a slightly heavier bleeding (my period, I assume). I had sex the night of the 12th and the guy came inside. Bleeding continued after but completely stopped the afternoon of the 14th. Is there a possibilty that I could change the hormones discharged in my system from 'excessive' washing and risk pregnancy? Or did my period stop because it's adjusting to the new hormones and new cycle?
If you've used the ring correctly you aren't going to get pregnant on the week break. You are protected. You're over thinking it.
