When is nuvaring effective ?

1 doctor answer
Dr. William Jurewitz
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
NuvaRing: If you begin the NuvaRing with your period it should be effective right away. If you start it at any other time use a back up method for at least 7 days. After 7 days the NuvaRing should be fully effective (98 % effective).
