Maybe/not: The ring, like the pill, prevents pregnancy by providing hormones in your blood that prevent egg release. After the ring has been out for a few days your system re-sets to its baseline fertility. That said, the cited average wait for a desired pregnancy is 6 mo with a range of weeks to a year.
