My husband and I are trying for a baby and I've been on the nuvaring for 2 years and I wanted to know how long it takes to come outta your system?

Nuva ring: Generally I recommend that patients wait at least 3 months after stopping hormonal contraceptive before attempting to conceive. The longer time interval you wait - the less likely any issues will occur but I would wait at least 3 months.

How long can it take for my wifes period to get back on track after coming off nuvaring?

How long can it take for my wifes period to get back on track after coming off nuvaring?

1 month: Many studies, over many years, have shown that hormonal contraception (pills, ring, patch) have no effect on fertility or menstrual cycle once they are stopped. However, once they are stopped, sometimes a pre-existing condition (like irregular cycles) that was hidden by the pill or ring will then become evident - don't blame this on the pill or ring! See your md if problems persist after 3 cycles.

Won't hurt: The septic system. Check the vaginal area and make sure it is not still in. If it is not time for your week off put in another one.

Use other protection: Yes the drug will still be in your system, but you should use other forms of birth control as you are not fully protected if you interrupt the cycle by removing early.

How long does after you stopped the nuvaring you get pregnant?

How long does after you stopped the nuvaring you get pregnant?

Soon: The ring loses it's efficacy if you have it out for longer than 3 hours at a time. So if you've "stopped" using it, you no longer are protected against getting pregnant. That said, sometimes it can take a few months or longer to get pregnant after coming off hormonal birth control.

It is ok: The NuvaRing should prevent you from conceiving. You should not need condoms with it, but you should keep it in place continuously for the 3 weeks you keep it inside your vagina.

How long would nuvaring take to protect against pregnancy?

How long would nuvaring take to protect against pregnancy?

Company says:: " insert NuvaRing on the 1st day of your cycle, (i.e., the first day of menstrual bleeding). Nuvaring will work immediately, it is not necessary to use an additional contraceptive method. You may also start on day 2 to 5 of your cycle, but in this case make sure you use an extra method of birth control (barrier method), such as male condoms or spermicide for the first 7 days of NuvaRing use.".

Can you take nuvaring out everytime u have sex as long as u put it back within 3 hrs?

No: If it falls out you can put it back in but if it keeps having to be put back it will be less and less effective and you should therefore find another form of birth control.

Am using nuvaring and when I take it out and get my periods there always black/brown color is that normal?

Yes: Sometimes with the NuvaRing there is just such a slight build up of the lining that the discharge is very little and the bleeding represents what looks like old blood and can be darker like you describe.

I have been on the nuvaring for 6 months but I get terrible mood swings and don't feel like myself. What can I take that is less likely to cause this?

I have been on the nuvaring for 6 months but I get terrible mood swings and don't feel like myself. What can I take that is less likely to cause this?

Mood swings on ring: The NuvaRing releases the contraceptive hormones 24 hours a day but the amount released varies by the week, a lot in the first week, less by the last week, and the week off will also change the hormones. You could switch to a pill with 20 mcg ethinyl Estradiol and 1 mg norethindrone, use it every night without a week off, then your hormones will be the same every day, no cycle, stable mood.
