Hi I took out my nuvaring after three weeks, I's been twelve days now and still didn't get my period. I've done pregnancy test but it came negative. What is happening can I possible be pregnant? Before my period come usually 3 or 4 day after I move out the ring but they were very light, almost like spotting.
But it was fine for 4 months and the last 3 periods were only spotting and for 2 days. It just stopped by its self. I think I'll test again at eh next "period" and see.
Sharp after three weeks I remove the nuvaring, it's been 12 days and still didn't get my period. Two days ago I took pregnancy test and it came out negative.

Took ring out on early on a sunday (was supposed to take it out 3 days later on a wednesday), because it seemed my period was chomping at the bit. was spotting a lot and crampy, but not a full blown period. Normally it's very obvious as I get two full days of terrible awful cramps. It's friday and I havent gotten the official period yet. The endometriosis pain hurts so much its shooting down my legs, back is killing me, stomach feels like im gassy or constipated or something.

I have been on Nuvaring for a year already. I took my ring out on the 14th and i had my period like normal, and put the ring back in on July 21 like I'm supposed to. I had completely stopped bleeding by then. The saturday before the 21st, so the 20th I had sex with my bf and we used a condom, but I didnt have my ring in. On Monday, the 22, I had random weird spotting which never happens..it wasn't a big deal and I didn't have any pain.
I have been spotting for the past 2 weeks! my periods are usually very short and regular so this is extremely long, and seems to never end! How do I stop the bleeding? can I just take my ring out, leave one week for a real period and insert a new ring? (by that I understand I wont' be protected for that time, but I just want to stop the bleeding!) Can someone help?
I have an OBGYN, but i am away at college and cant visit a doctor until thanksgiving break because of my insurance. I took the nuvaring out so i could rinse it off today and noticed it looked like there was a slit in it, like the ring had torn. i dont know if thats the cause, if the meds arent working, if it scratched my vagina, if im having serious medical problems, or if im just paranoid. Please help.

I started the Nuvaring about two months ago and recently my fiance and I had unprotected sex and he came inside me a few times. Two days later it was time to take it out for my period but I only spotted. I also put it back in 5 days late because one, I forgot and two, when I was at the pharmacy I was scared to put it in because if I am prego with it have any defects because I put it back in? Kind of freaked out.
Hello. I inserted Nuvaring on the first day of my period three days ago and after some very light spotting for the next 1.5 days it stopped completely. I used condoms all the times that I had sex last month and I took a pregnancy test this morning which was negative. But is it something I should worry about?

Took a digital pregnancy test on tuesday and wednesday and said not pregnant and then went for a beta test and they told me negative!
Just wondering, how long does it take for most people to return to a normal cycle after stopping NuvaRing?? My husband and I are having sex about everyday/every-other-day during my fertile time...does it usually take people a long time to concieve after being on NuvaRing??
I used several kinds of birth control pills for five years, and then most recently on NuvaRing for about a year. I stopped using the ring 2 months ago, and have not tested positive yet. I've had some light sporratic spotting (about a week before and a week after my period). It's just enough to see it when I wipe myself. When do most people return to a nomal cycle after using NuvaRing? Is the spotting something I should worry about??
I'm 19 years old and have been on the nuvaring for 2 years now. I always use it as directed but lately I have been feeling a little off. My boyfriend and I don't use condoms and sometimes he doesn't pull out. My ring comes out sometimes but I always put it right back in within an hour. A few weeks ago after intercourse I noticed some bleeding which lasted for 3 days after. I never get spotting in between periods so I thought it was really weird.
I gave birth to my son in November 2011 and started the nuvaring the first Sunday in January. It messed with my breast milk so I did not put in a new one the last week of January. I ended up spotting sometime during the first or second week of February. Here it is almost the third week of march and I haven't received a period yet but have a lot of menstral type cramping...which should have came (or at least I would think so), but my question is since I almost exclusively breast feed...
I am a 37 year old mother of 2, ages 9 and 17, and I have been on the nuva ring for 7 years, almost religious with my schedule punctuality. I am not sexually active and have not been for 4 years. I also used to drink and smoke very heavily frequently and quit in 2009.
It's supposed to stop your period if you leave it in continuously and switch out the ring either every 3 or 4 weeks. But everyone is different, it might not work for you. I was on the nuvaring for a month and a half and then I had my period. Right after a month I was so excited and then like 6 weeks in I got a period. I think some women have a very strong cycle and it's hard to stop it with hormonal birth control. It may take a few months or so as well.
For the first 2 weeks I had bleeding and spotting off and on, mostly brown clots and discharge, it varied each day. Then it slowly faded away... and for a few days I had very little if any discharge and it was clear. I am a little worried now, because in the past 3 days the discharge has come back, but now it is very watery and it's a clearish color with a slight brown tint. It has a very foul smell.. and it's soaking through regular underwear and pantyliners.
I recently found out that I have 5 fibroids in my uterus and they put me on the Nuvaring. However I have been spotting just about every week for the past 3 weeks for about 4 days a week and I have been in a lot of pain with alot of pressure. Is this normal?
OH and by the way my breast hurt and I've had some weird cramping and some very bad heart burn. Maybe this is all due to stress. I really don't know. Thank you all and have a very blessed day.
Last night and early this morning I noticed more red to itand was a little heavier than what it was but now its back to really light spotting with brown blood again. Idk if this is due to me coming off the nuvaring or if I might have gotten pregnant. I have very few slight signs but idk. I also feel like I wont be getting my regular flow at all this month. Any help, stories, and advise would be great. Im gonna see my doctor on the 18th anyways so fingers crossed.
i have been on implanon for 3 yrs and 9months adn did not have a cycle while on implanon. I recently just had it removed and now is on the nuvaring. I have been on the nuvaring for 3 months now and still havent had a cycle yet.
I was on the Nuvaring for 6 years and loved it, I was recently forced to stop using it due to insurance reasons. I had unprotected sex the 1st month off of it but then got my period 3 days before I usually would while on the ring and yes it was a full 5 day period not spotting. I am suppose to start back up on the nuvaring this week but the past few weeks i have been nauseas, fatigued, and have no appetite. I had unprotected sex right before and during my period.
I just had a baby October 17 and I was put on the nuvaring and in out it in on December 7 on the first day of my cycle and 3 days before I was supposed to remove the ring I started bleeding pretty heavy and when I took my ring out on December 28 a large clot came out as well it was fleshy looking as well. And I am still bleeding heavy, I have to use a pad along with a tampon because I leak if I don't. I put the new ring in today in hopes that the bleeding will slow or stop.
I started using Nuvaring in Feb. of this year. My partner and I also used condoms with it. Then on April 3rd, we opted not to use the condom and he came in me. I told him I was on birth control and that it should be fine. In the last two weeks my appetite has increased tremendously. I seemed to have gained weight in the last few days.
Throw the ring away and choose 1 of the 2 options below: 1. Insert a new ring immediately. This begins the next 3-week use period. You may not have a period but you may experience breakthrough spotting or bleeding. 2. Have your period and insert a new ring no later than 7 days from the time the previous ring was removed or expelled. This option should be chosen only if the ring was used continuously for the preceding 7 days.
