1 Bump

is it possible?

I have been on the nuva ring for about 5 months now. I took it on on 5th of December. I had my menstural cycle on the 9th - 11th. Put the ring back in on the 12th of December. Took it back out on the 26th and haven't had a period. I have been doing the every three weeks. I still haven't had a period and its the end of January. I am so nervous. I don't know if I can get pregnant on the Nuva Ring. Is it possible that I could be? I know I could be but I already have two children and I didn't think I could get pregnant on the nuva ring.

  • It is possible to get pregnant if you have sex no matter if you are birth control or not. I would test since your period is late.

  • Yes, it's possible. I think the rate is 99% effective, meaning 1 out of every 100 who uses it will get pregnant.

  • Birth control is not 100% effective.
