It is the day I am to take it out for the first cycle and my doctor says that I should wait a month after starting NR before my boyfriend cums in me. We plan to start doing it the day after I take it out. So is it safe for us to do this?
He told you a month not 3 weeks, didn't he. There was a reason for that. It was so you would be protected.
A month would be when you put the next ring in. You should wait until then to have sex without a condom. Having sex, then having the man withdrawing the penis before ejaculation, does nothing to protect you from getting pregnant so you should wait a month to have any sex without using condoms. If your boyfriend is putting a naked penis into your vagina, he can still get you pregnant whether he ejaculates (cums) or not. Men secrete sperm all throughout the sex act, not just at ejaculation-granted, the majority are released during ejaculation but it only takes one to make you pregnant. He cannot feel or control this release of sperm but it happens, even if he doesnt see anything when he masturbates-vaginal sex is different than masturbation-so if you have been having sex and withdrawing before ejaculation, you may have already gotten pregnant. The reason to wait a full month or full cycle is to be sure that the hormones in the ring have prevented you from ovulating. If there is no egg, there can be no pregnancy. You can begin having unprotected sex after you have your period and you put your new ring in-then is when you will be ready. If you have been having sex and using withdrawal and you dont start your period, do a pregnancy test to be sure that you are not already pregnant before you put the new ring in place.
