Pregnant?: First, make sure you are not pregnant! the nuvaring, like birth control pills or the patch can result in very light, or sometimes no period simply by the way these hormonal medications work. If you are not pregnant, having light or no period on the NuvaRing is perfectly ok- you are not doing your body any harm. When you go off contraception, your periods will be right back to normal.
