Pregnancy is: unlikely. Take a pregnancy test. If negative then you are on your way having your period.

No: If you are using the Nuva Ring per instructions accurately, you should not be worried about pregnancy. It is normal to see some brownish spotting if you are using it to skip your periods. If you have not followed the instructions accurately, then please do a pregnancy test. For example, if you removed your Nuva Ring for sex and then forgot to insert it back right away. Good Luck!
