My doctor is a moron and didn't renew my nuvaring and I'm disorganized and didn't go to refill it until the day I was supposed to insert it. So I ended up inserting it two days late. We used condoms for the next 7 days and are covered there. But can I remove it on the same schedule I had been on, meaning 19 days after insertion instead of 21, and then replace it 7 days later as usual? I want to stay on the same schedule but will I be protected against pregnancy if I take it out 2 days early? Thank you!
Do not take it out early. You should let it in for the 21 days, but then only have it out for 5 days, and you will have it back on track.
