First of all, no worries. I have been using the nuva ring for 5 years. There have been many times where I haven't taken out the ring on the correct day. Either for vacations or because I just forget to take it out sometimes. I recently went to the docter and was going to switch to the depo shot so that I wouldnt have periods anymore, and she informed me that I can use the nurva ring in a similar way. She said that I just need to leave the ring in for 4 weeks instead of 3; after the 4th week take the ring out and immediatly replace it with a new one. The first month I did this, I had lots of cramps and even gas and bloating...all the singhs of pms really. I called and asked the doc what was up and she said that it was normal and to see if the same symptoms happened next month...the next month it was a little better and the next alomost completly normal. Dont worry you are fine.
