I've been on the Nuvaring for two years. I put this ring in two weeks late but it always takes about 5 days for my period to come and it lasts for around 5 days so my one week off is never exact. I forgot to put my ring back in after sex on Saturday night I believe and it's Wednesday. I realized I forgot to put it back in when I went to wipe and there was blood. I don't know if it's spotting or my period, but I was pmsing on Monday and yesterday. Should I take plan b? Or will it be too late anyway? Or is this period going to help flush out any sperm etc?
Today's pushing it, plan B is taken within 72 hrs. You should never alter your ring schedule. Its 3 weeks in one week out . This is no matter what you're period is doing. Its break thru bleeding from having the ring out. Did you put a new one in as soon as you remembered? Youve been lucky so far if you've been using the ring this way for 2 yrs.

NuvaRing - I counted the weeks wrong and took out the nuva ring exactly a week early. I took it out?
