I think my doctor told me to put the ring in the wrong way. She said to wait until the last day of my period. I took the ring out two days ago and now I'm worried I may be pregnant. Should I take a pregnancy test or do I have to wait two weeks?

It does not really make a difference, as long as you did not have a man ejaculate inside your vagina for the first 7 days you had the ring in.

I had sex at least once during that time frame. We didn't use a condom. He came inside of me.

Just continue to use the ring as you were prescribed. 21 days after the sex, take a pregnancy test. Repeat it 7 days later to confirm the results. With a little bit of luck, you were still infertile when you had sex.

Best of luck
