I have had the Nuvaring in for a month because my period hasn't started should I just take it out and put a new one in?
sam95; Here are some directions on the Nuvaring, From what I see and you double check too. it should be in place for 21 days, then removed for one week then replaced with a new one. If you have any question check with your doctor or Pharmacist. Here is the copy and paster from drugs . com. Use NuvaRing exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not wear more than one ring at a time. Read all patient information, medication guides, and instruction sheets provided to you. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.
Your doctor will tell you which day to insert the first vaginal ring you use. During the first 7 days, you may need to use back-up birth control (condoms or spermicide, but not a diaphragm).
The NuvaRing vaginal ring will not prevent pregnancy if you wear it only during intercourse. You must wear the ring around-the-clock for 3 full weeks (21 days).
Remove the NuvaRing on the same day of the week it was inserted, at about the same time of day. Wait 7 full days before inserting a new ring. Avoid leaving the vaginal ring in place for longer than 3 weeks. Call your doctor if you get off schedule.
The NuvaRing should stay in place during sexual intercourse. If the ring is bothersome, you may remove it, rinse it with warm water, and reinsert it after intercourse. Do not leave the ring out for longer than 3 hours.
You may have breakthrough bleeding. Tell your doctor if this bleeding continues or is very heavy. hOPE THIS WELL ANSWER YOUR QUESTION. and remember 3 weeks in and one week out. if you are still confused call the doctor. good luck
