Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you removed it for more than few hours and days, then the bleeding that you experience could be the withdrawal bleeding. If the bleeding is lighter and shorter than your usual period, then it could be due to implantation. Consider visiting your gynecologist for a thorough check before you put in a new ring.
Take care.
