Leaving Nuvaring out: Well you can leave it out as long as you want! but if you want to continue using it as a contraceptive, i suggest that you leave it out no longer than 24 hrs. This may not be a wise idea considering the metabolism the hormones in the ring because you may have possible ovulation and risk the chance of an unwanted pregnancy.
