... still long it lasted 5 days so after day 5 I just took it out because it didn't help with my period and after I had light blood that u could barely see now I'm spotting and cramping like my period has come back I had sex before my period and before the nuvaring was inserted so I am a bit worried
You have to use it all the time for it to effect your period. You can't just stick it in when you have a period and try to change it. The hormones during the month make the uterine lining less and this is what helps make your period shorter and lighter. If you use it correctly it will protect you from pregnancy too.

Will Nuvaring still protect against pregnancy if I put it in for the 1st time before I start period?
