Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The prolonged bleeding that did not stop with Nuvaring could be related to your Von-Willebrand’s disease. Do not delay your visit to your healthcare provider for blood work-up and further investigations to come to the exact cause responsible for prolonged bleeding. An internal/pelvic examination is required by a gynecologist to see what the ‘lump’ could be and from where it is arising from.
