I am currently using the Nuvaring. I have the ring in for three weeks and out for one week.
When I plan down the road for that time of the month – I have realized – I am on schedule to have my period during my wedding week! 🙁
So – Can anyone give me a healthy way to throw my schedule off a week or so? We arent going on a honeymoon – so the week after would be fine.

Talk to your doctor about this first, but you can go from one ring to another without having a break in between. I used to do this a lot, and now my doctor has me using one ring for 4 weeks and then switching to a new one without a break.

I do that with the pill, skip the ‘sugar’ pills and skip the period, so my body doesn’t go through the Pill-withdrawl-period… since the Nuva Ringsimply delivers the same hormones in a differnt manner, I think just inserting a new ring the week you’d take the old one out would accomplish the same thing.

This sounds like a good idea…
I talked to my doctor but she is dead set against anything that breaks my schedule — and said not to do anything different… I know for a fact you can – just like you ladies do!

I’d ask you physician. That’s what I did and it was really easy and I just did it when I had an appt. Mine was all for scheduling it around my wedding/honeymoon (it was originally her idea before I even thought about it!!) Try maybe calling if your ob or family doctor has a nurse you could talk to vs making an appointment and spending money to just hear them tell you 2 sentences!

@klb2748: Honestly, I would get a second opinion, just because I know you can do it safely. Talk to her again, and if she is still against it, call and schedule an appointment with another dr.
