  • Call your doc tomorrow morning, ask...I would put it back in if it were me, your body is probably adjusting to the change in hormone levels..but it wouldn't hurt to ask first!

  • I had the late period thing when I was on the pill. I would go through the "period" pills and nothing, so I'd wait cause I couldn't get a test and didn't want to be taking the pills and be pregnant. A couple of days later i'd start my period. It sucked. I don't know what to tell you though. I'm not sure if this is just a fluke with your period.

  • I would seriously keep testing. My personal experience is, i was on it for about 9 months after i had my daughter and i found out i was pregnant in March of this year i went for all my check-ups but still had a miscarriage in June. I went back on it figuring it was just a fluke and on september 4th i had another miscarriage, i didn't even know i was pregnant this last time. I will NEVER use the nuvaring again. I don't want to scare you but it has done a lot to me in the last year and to have 2 miscarriages in 3 months, i really don't think it should even be offered as birth control. It is very possible that you could be pregnant and i hope everything turns out ok for you. Good luck.
