  • It takes your body time to get used to going on BC so it's completely normal that you haven't gotten your period yet. Replace the new ring as directed, I believe it's 7 days. Even if you get your period on the 6 or 7th day just replace it and in time your body will adjust to the schedule. Watch for warning signs from your body. I was on Nuva for 3 weeks and developed a blood clot in my lung. I was suddenly very short of breath and couldn't have a conversation with someone. Just a helpful hint- know the side effects.
