didn't put my nuva ring in
An_257916 posted:
June 19th I was supposed to put my ring back in but decided not to I did have sex but with a condom . I feel like I'm ready to start back on birth control so I recently inserted a new one. Will I have to wait 7 days before I can have unprotected sex ? And will I have a whole different cycle?

This information on NuvaRing addresses what to do if you do not remove the ring on the appropriate day or fail to place a new one. It sounds like you should wait 7 days before having unprotected sex to be safe. You might contact your doctor to confirm and ask if your cycle could be affected by this.
