I miscalculated and took my nuvaring out one week early. My fiance and I had unprotected sex that same day as well as the next. I just wonder if I should be worried about pregnancy?..

thank you

also, my last menstrual cycle was due to start on 11/24/2010, it showed up 11/25/2010, but didnt last a full day, and the two days that followed were only spotting... (only showed up when I wiped.) I have been using the nuvaring for about 3 months. I used it before for 3 yrs. but went off (didnt want to pay and I wasnt involved in a relationship). i was using samples of pills up until 3 months ago and I switched back to nuvaring.

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Did you put back the Nuvaring again after intercourse? If you have completely removed it, then it is a matter of concern. Wait for your periods to see if you get your normal/usual periods (with similar bleeding flow and duration). Visit your gynecologist/obstetrician for a check to confirm/rule out pregnancy if you do not get your periods or get an abnormal period.
Take care.
