I just started using the Nuvaring. I'm a flight attendant, and it was towards the middle of week 2 on the ring when I left for a work trip and forgot to take my new ring with me. It was a series of trips, and I didn't come home until week 4. I had started bleeding, full period, and replaced the ring immediately when I returned home. I was aiming for the continual method. 1 week later, and I'm STILL bleeding. I'm visiting my long distance bf tomorrow, and don't want a period the whole visit! Is this normal? Can I expect this to stop any time soon? Is there anything I can do?
