Nuvaring out and still protected ?

Hi, I am just about to go on my ring-free week tomorrow, so me and my boyfriend decided to have sex, my question is, since I have to take the ring out tomorrow, will I still be protected on my ring-free week?

Sorry this is a little late, but yes, you are safe from pregnancy. Your ring free week is like the placebo week of birth control pills.
