My sister put in her nuva ring after her period last month
over the course of the next three weeks while she had the ring in she had unprotected sex with her boyfriend...... alot of it
Now, she took the nuva ring out three days ago and still hasnt gotten her period. We are really worried and dont know if she could be pregnant even though she had the nuva ring....
Could she be? Can you do the nuvaring wrong? Like putting it in wrong?

  • i used nuvaring for about 6 months... i don't remember any weight gain, but i didn't like getting it in the right spot then having to dig around to find it to pull it out... also, my husband could feel it when we were having sex. it didn't work out for me. i also tried the patch, and i was allergic to the adhesive. so i had these little rectangle rashes where the patch was. (i should have thought about my sensitive skin, as i'm allergic to bandaid glue as well). i feel like a test bunny, i've really tried just about everything- but i'd like to try merena IUD that lasts up to 5 years, but i'm a bit uncomfortable about the procedure since i haven't had children and having my cervix dilated. i'm 30, and don't plan on any for at least 5 years and i've heard the side effects are minimal.... has anyone used this IUD?

  • I've been on the ring for about a year and decided to stop using it. So on the 1st of September I took the ring out as normal and started my menstral on the 4th of September. It was normal but started to get tingling in the breast then start a brown discharge about a week after the end of my mentral. Then I start a kinda egg white kinda discharge that had kinda a pink mixture in it. And all the while I have been having crampin the entire time. I had unprotected sex on the 24th of August. I've never had all these symptoms at once took a HPT and it was neg. Can someone please give me insite as to what my be going on. :eek:

  • A plastic ring which releases hormones over a period of three weeks to provide contraceptive benefits. It is inserted into the vagina after your period, left for three weeks and then removed to allow for the next period. holiday gift baskets
