Hello. I haven't been off birth control for almost a year and a half no
w (mostly because I couldn't afford it). However, a few months ago I finally decided to make birth control a priority and got a prescription for a nuvaring
. I loved it because I'm the type of person who'd most likely forget to take a pill one day or even two... but I digress.
On beginning the nuvaring
, the instructions state that, if inserted on the first day you'd have instant protection.
