Nuva Ring BC and unprotected sex user banned
9th Oct '11

So I had been off of my bc for 2 months... I had gotten off the implanon in July and stopped using BC in August. I just put a new ring in last Thursday and have had sex unprotected twice.... Could I still get pregnant or am I covered?



*ETA* I know there is always a chance of pregnancy on any BC I just want to know if the BC is effective this soon after being off of it for 2 months.**

you've had unprotected sex since you placed to Nuva ring in? You should be fine. But like you said u already know there is a chance, so if you are nervous about it, test when necessary.

I don't want to scare you....but that's exactly what happened to me, and I was pregnant the very next month.

They usually tell you to use a backup method (condoms) for a month. I got pregnant using NuvaRing after having been on it THREE YEARS. Nothing's for sure. Be careful.

Last Friday night. I noticed sore b**bs on Thursday night... It got a little worse and now it's fading. It's like my nipples are sore and there is not reason for them to be sore.
