No: Nuvaring is a birth control method and molar pregnancy is a abnormal pregnancy, you would not be at increased risk of a molar pregnancy because of using a contraceptive.
Dr. Nikolaos Zacharias
Maternal-Fetal Medicine 26 years experience
No.: Nuvaring prevents pregnancy - has nothing to do with molar pregnancy.

Failed pregnancy: It is a misformed conception and damaged baby. Does not bode well for having a baby.
