Birth control question, taking it late after period

i've been on the nuvaring for 9 months and it's worked great, so i always take it out on a friday and put it back in on a friday. well friday i called the walmart pharmacy to refill my script and they closed early and wouldn't be open again til monday so i got it monday and put it in. i know the rules, don't have sex w/o a condom for 2 weeks when you miss a couple days so we got condoms. my question is do i still take it out on the friday 3 weeks from now or the monday since i put it in monday this time?

  • You can take it out Friday. But since you put it in Monday you's be shorting yourself 3 days of the ring.
