1-2 months: Mirena (levonorgestrel) inhibits the growth inside the uterus and it takes a little time to grow back. With the NuvaRing you will probable have a cycle by the time you remove the second one. That assumes you use it cyclic, 3 weeks in 1 week out. If you immed. Started using continuous, 4 weeks in and immed. Switch with a new one, you may not have a cycle. ...Read more

Right away: Using the Nuva Ring does not prolong your chances of becoming pregnant. It might take a cycle or two, but you should be able to conceive (chances with any cycle are around 20-25%) next cycle.

When do you ovulate while on nuvaring?

When do you ovulate while on nuvaring?

You don't: Nuvaring, like birth control pills, helps prevent pregnancy primarily by inhibiting ovulation (preventing your ovary from releasing an egg), by tricking your body into thinking it has already done so. Therefore, you do not ovulate while using nuvaring, provided you do so correctly. ...Read more

What are some of the side effects of nuvaring?

What are some of the side effects of nuvaring?

Perhaps not: As with birth control pills, some women may not have the withdrawal bleeding on occasion. This is due to the fact that NuvaRing contains both estrogen and progestin. Estrogen makes the uterine lining grow whereas the progestin makes it thinner. Progestin always dominates so most women will experience lighter periods. Sometimes the lining becomes so thin that no withdrawal bleeding occurs. ...Read more
