... Three weeks in one week out. Well a week ago I took it out and three days after it was out I spotted but I never got my period and it's normal for me to be a few days late but I ALWAYS get it before the week is up. I put it back in when I was suppose to but my questions are... can I be pregnant if I have ALWAYS done it right and I've read everything on this birthcontrol and followed it to a T? And then if I do happen to be pregnant could having the birth control in hurt anything? I'd like to wait another month before I freak out so these are my questions
If you've been using it exactly as prescribed, it says in the Nuvaring Professional Information that if you've missed 2 periods, you should rule out pregnancy before using Nuvaring again. This is exactly what it says :
In the Event of a Missed Menstrual Period
If the woman has not adhered to the prescribed regimen (NuvaRing has been out of the vagina for more than three hours or the preceding ring-free interval was extended beyond one week), consider the possibility of pregnancy at the time of the first missed period and discontinue NuvaRing use if pregnancy is confirmed.
**If the woman has adhered to the prescribed regimen and misses two consecutive periods, rule out pregnancy.**
If the woman has retained one NuvaRing for longer than four weeks, rule out pregnancy.
Therefore, if you miss another period, make sure you take a test, see a doctor, and make sure you are in fact not pregnant before starting your regimen again.

I've been on the Nuvaring for 4 years. I usually use it for 3 weeks, then immediately put a new one?
