I took my nuvaring out two weeks after i inserted it. So i took it out a week ealier by mistake. Im on the day i was supposed to take it out and i tried to get a refill but i cant get a refill for another 4 days. Am i still safe from getting pregnant am i at risk? What should i do?
No you're not safe and haven't been since you took the ring out. You can't just pick a week you want your off week. Our bodies work in a cycle and the hormonal birth control methods are made to work with that cycle. If you take it out accidently you put another right back in. You can let it in for 4 weeks to get back on track. You won't be safe until you have the new ring in for a week.
