So my situation is.
Usually I take my nuva ring out after 3 weeks. And I've been on it almost a year. I LOVE it.
This 2 times ago, I was going on vacation and I just left it in the 4th week. No period, and then i was 2 days late putting the new one in. And I left the old one in those 2 days just for safety. Didn't have intercourse for atleast a week and a half after the switch. They say 7 days after you insert the new ring are you then protected. We use condoms. And then this last ring change, i changed it at the 4 week mark again, because it was new years and you know.. so I didn't want my period then, and so I didn't get it, I changed it a few days early. Do you think theres a change I could be pregnant?
I was just paranoid i think. I also just read " If NuvaRingÂ® remains in the vagina for 1-7 extra days, remove it and re-insert a new ring after a one-week break. You will still have contraceptive protection during the extra week and during your period."
So i'm going to guess that I would still have protection those 2 days. I think I'm just sending myself through loops and crazying myself up.
I was on Nuvaring for about 5 months. In that time I notice a lot of Burning from time to time with the discharge. I would get yeast infection like symptoms just prior to my cycle. Also My anxiety worsened. My doctor put me on prozac to control it. I stopped using it and went back to Loestrine. Because of my insurance I have to use Nuvaring again and I'm scared. I have been on Loestrine and free of these symptoms for 4 months. Tomorrow I will need to put the ring in. Is it possible that the ring is just not meant for me?
Yeah, it's possible. Can you get a generic version of loestrin? Even if you have to pay full price for a generic, it might be better than being miserable on the ring. I was on generic loestrin and had to pay about $20 per month, which was worth it to me. Or you could go to planned parenthood too, they will give you whatever you want at lower costs.
