Basics: Removal of the ring makes your body reset to normal in releasing eggs on its own schedule. From that point you are at risk. When starting a pill, all recommend a backup BC for at least a week or more & many OBs say 1 month until your body is in sinc with the pill. Consider yourself at risk.
