Hi all,
I know you are supposed to insert the ring between 1st and 5th day of your menstrual cycle but what if your cycle is irregular? Mine always has been but recently even more so. I haven't had my period in over a month and a half or two and was curious- if I insert it now, how long should I use alternative contraception for? I was thinking waiting a full month should be sufficient but I'm not certain...
Thank you!!!

If your period is irregular, you need to insert it around the time of your last period, if you can remember it. If not, just pick a day. You should use back up birth control for the first seven days. Then NuvaRing is effective.
