Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you have been sexually active without protection after having your withdrawal bleeding and after stopping with Nuvaring use, the chances of pregnancy are possible. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be needed to look for the underlying cause for your absent periods. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get your periods and regulate them. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
