Welcome to ehealthforum,
If this was not your first time use of the Nuvaring, you will remain protected even after taking it out (to allow for periods to occur). If this was your first time use of Nuvaring, you might be at risk for pregnancy if having unprotected intercourse during first 3-4 weeks. Wait and watch for your periods. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
