- Wedding: September 2013
Okay … I started NuvaRing on May 12th (my last period was May 3rd)
My doctor said to wait 3 weeks to have unprotected sex “to be safe.” (everything online says you’re protected against pregnancy after 7 days).
Me and my fiance had unprotected sex ONCE on June 1st. He came inside me.
I took the NuvaRing out on June 2nd. The website said I should get my period 2-3 days later.
Well, it’s been 4 days and still no period.
I emailed my doctor and she said I “should be fine” but if I don’t get my period by this Saturday (June 8th), to take a pregnancy test.
So I am totally freaking out.
My periods are usually every 28 days or so and I am very regular.
This is my first experience with birth control.
I’ve only been late with my period 2 or 3 times before in the last 5 or so years, and normally it was due to very high stress.
And I AM really stressed right now – the wedding is in 4 months, I’m still relatively new to my job, and we just moved into a new house.
But the thought of possibly being pregnant terrifies me and stresses me out even more. I CAN’T be pregnant. We are physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially NOT ready for it.
And the wedding is in 4 months!!! Honeymoon in 5 months!! I can’t be a pregnant bride!!!
I don’t feel any different or weird. In fact, I am having some PMS symptoms that I get right before my period usually starts – sore boobs, some cramps, moody.
I know in the end I will just have to wait it out but …. how worried do you think I should be?
Does anyone else have any experience with unprotected sex on NuvaRing?
Please be kind. I am so stressed out right now.
