@LGenz:  yes… OP, 3 weeks from May 12 is June 2. Take it out then, use nothing for a week, and then insert a new ring on June 9.

It’s not a big deal at all.

I think the nuvaring can release hormones for 45 consecutive days, so even if you were over your 21 days you would still be fine!

You are supposed to leave the ring in for 21 days and remove for 7, then put in a new nuvaring. 21 days from May 12th will take you to June 2nd, so you are supposed to remove the ring on June 2nd, I am not sure where you got the date of the 26th from!?!?!?

@Stace126:  it might be helpful for you to set a reminder on your calendar/phone so you know exactly when to take it out and put in a new one. It can take awhile to get in a rhythm, and any error in the timing puts you in the danger zone!

@Stace126:  Yeah I have google reminders set up, it was too much of a pain to keep track otherwise

When I used the ring, my gyno told me I could roll with it in for 4 weeks and be fine. 4 weeks in, one week out. I am still childfree after 1 year of using it that way.

Either way,you’re most likely fine!

If you do screw it up, there should be info with it about what to do as well.  Most prescribed medications have that, or at least in Canada they do.

I wouldn’t worry about it. My friend is using NuvaRing, and her doctor told her that four weeks was fine. She puts it in for four weeks and takes it out for one, so she skips a couple periods a year.

I also have a friend who uses Nuvaring for 4 weeks in, 1 week out.  But, her doctor said to do so, and you should follow your own doctor’s advice.

I’m a special snowflake – I wear 3 rings in a row for 3 weeks each (so, 9 weeks of continuous coverage) and then go without for a week.  I get killer migraines unless my hormones are under control (it’s shark week right now, and my head has been killing me for a week straight – can’t wait to put a new ring in tomorrow).

@Stace126:  Technically there are enough hormones in the ring to last 5 weeks so leaving it in an extra week, while not something to make a habit of, shouldn’t cause any damage (might mess up your cycle a bit is all)

I HAVE to write down my in/out dates in my calendar, or else I’ll end up being off a day or two either way. I’m on my last cycle of nuva so after this month it won’t be an issue, but doing that helped me NOT get pregnant with it for two years.
