TRY TO RELAX: Could be just the worry of not having your period. If 2wks pass w.O menses either go to your doctor's office for a preg test or take an over the counter test yourself. If you persist w.O a cycle blood tests can tell if there is any imbalance causing the lack of bleeding. Most likely it is worry related.

Missed period: It is not uncommon for someone to have a delayed period after stopping any type of hoymonal contraceptive. Your body is trying to get back to its normal rhythm without the artificial hormones. It may last from a few weeks of delay and sometimes, up to a year. If you are greatly concerned about this, see your gynecologist. You may need some blood tests to make sure everything is alright.

Yes: If the ring was out for more than 7 days and you had intercourse then you were not protected at that time and Plan B is a good idea.
