... read that it takes 7 days to protect you from pregnancy. I didn't wait to start the ring til after my period like I should've. Didn't want to wait. So it's been a week now and I normally would've started yesterday. Should I be worried about being pregnant with no spotting at all?
Your period isn't going to come until the week the ring is out. Starting it other then when you should have then not waiting 7 days would probably increase the risk of pregnancy. I really don't understand you girls, you want to prevent a baby but then defy the directions in using the birth control.
