How Long Does It Take The Nuvaring To Get Outta Your System
Once removed: The hormones of a NuvaRing are cleared from your system relatively quickly once the device has been removed form your vagina.
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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Not bragging at all, just didn't know how long nuvaring would stil be in my system since I've been using it over a yr.
What happens if I accidentally flushed nuvaring down the toilet? Will it get caught or hurt the septic system? Should I put in a new one right away?
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.
On second month of nuvaring, was I suppose to wait 7 days for new ring to get in system or is that only for first use? I had unprotected sex.
3 weeks in 1 out: You place the NuvaRing in the vagina for 3 weeks. Then you remove it for one week. Then you place the next ring and repeat the process.
I took my nuvaring out mid cycle a week early had break through bleeding. How long will I become fertile again? Is it still in my system?
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.
Usually 2 to 3 days.: Your period will usually start within 2 to 3 days after removing nuvaring.
How long does it take for the hormones in nuvaring to leave your body after you have taken it out?

How long will it take my body to adjust to the nuvaring? I have never been on another bc besides the iud, which was removed. How soon am I protected?
Second ring: You have some protection right away and full protection with the second ring.
As soon: As it is out fertility returns. It acts just like birth control pills.
I started the nuvaring today. How long do I need to wait before I can stop usimg condoms. Also can I take iy out dutring sex?
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.".
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?
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.
