I'm on my ring free week, but my period isn't due for another 3 days. When my boyfriend and I have sex he usually comes inside me. Is it still okay for him to do this if I'm on my ring free week? Is there a chance I could get pregnant if he does?
You are protected even the week you have it out.
Just to clarify in case you ever do need back up protection, pulling out doesnt protect you from pregnancy at all. This is a wives tale/myth kind of thing. Men secrete small amounts of sperm all through sex, not just when they ejaculate or "come" and they cant feel this or control it but it can get you pregnant. Granted, the majority are released during ejaculation but since it only takes one, pulling out offers no "extra" or back up protection. Since this is just your ring free week, you are protected but if it ever comes a time, say, the ring falls out for longer than 3 hours and you need back up protection, just pulling out before ejaculation can get you pregnant. You MUST use a barrier from of protection, like a condom, otherwise it is a wasted gesture.
