Nuvaring withdrawal symptoms ?

I've been on the nuvaring for about a year and a half. I removed one on June 14, started a period on June 17 which ended on June 20. I was away and forgot to bring my Rx so I never reinserted on on the 21st. I had unprotected sex with my husband on the 21st and 22nd. I wasn't planning on putting it back in because we were going to start TTC in September, so I wanted to let my cycles regulate. I'm beginning to get nervous that I may have gotten pregnant already- it wouldn't be a terrible thing- but I have major anxiety issues and the "unknown" is giving me panic attacks. I'm hoping it didn't happen yet- but if it did, I'll deal.

I'm wondering if the chances are high or low to get pregnant in the above situation.

Thanks!

Can yo be more precisely: When did you insert the new ring?
What is that so terrible if you conceive in June instead of September?

I never inserted a new one.

It wouldn't be so terrible. But I have generalized anxiety disorder and I was having major anxiety attacks thinking I may not be ready after all.

So far the HPT's are coming up negative. If I'm not pregnant now- we'll be waiting longer than a few months- because obviously, with my reaction of anxiety and panic, I'm not quite as ready as I thought I was.

If I am pregnant- I'll just have to deal with it and get used to the idea!

Chances for you to conceive so soon after stop using nuvaring are small. Body usually needs 2-3 months to establish the ovulations and full fertilization ability.
