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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Can I get pregnant if I had unprotected sex the night before I need to take off the nuvaring?

Can I get pregnant if I had unprotected sex the night before I need to take off the nuvaring?

Quite Unlikeiy: If the question means the night before the NuvaRing is to be removed and start menses, then it would be unlikely to conceive, since the NuvaRing is an effective method of birth control and does not need backup. Protected sex with a NuvaRing is recommended to reduce the risk of contracting a sexxually transmitted disease. ...Read more

I was on nuvaring for 5 years, I went off bc 5 months ago and no pregnancy yet how longer I need to wait to get pregnant?

Normal: Once a woman stops birth control the chance of getting pregnant is about 15-20% per cycle. 80% of women are pregnant by one year. So it's normal to not be pregnant yet 5 months after stopping birth control. You are most fertile 14 days before the next period is due. ...Read more

I have been on the nuvaring for about 3-4 years now, but I have taken it out to conceive. How long will it be until I am able to get pregnant?

I have been on the nuvaring for about 3-4 years now, but I have taken it out to conceive. How long will it be until I am able to get pregnant?

No change: The NuvaRing doesn't have much of an effect on infertility after discontinuation. The only birth control that has been proven to have a lasting effect is the depot provera (medroxyprogesterone). Any given cycle has about a 20% chance of conception. So at age 19 it could take 5-6 months before pregnancy and that would be normal. ...Read more

I'm off the nuvaring. Its been about almost 2wks now. It seems that I'm having breakthrough bleeding. How soon can I get pregnant? How long it last?

I'm off the nuvaring. Its been about almost 2wks now. It seems that I'm having breakthrough bleeding. How soon can I get pregnant? How long it last?

Breakthru bleeding: By definition, breakthrough bleeding occurs while taking some form of hormonal birth control, not after stopping said contraception. So the fact that you're bleeding 2wks after removing your Nuvaring means that your body is attempting to return to its monthly hormonal cycle. So you can start trying to get pregnant. Of course, if you don't want to get pregnant, then use some (other) form of birth c ...Read more

If I have nuvaring in for 2 weeks then take it out to have my period, can I get pregnant if I was sexually active during first 2 weeks but not after?

Yes: You are using nuva ring the wrong way. Go to their website and read directions which should have come with the prescriptions or doctor sample. Call your doctor for more guidance. Should be used three weeks on 1 off for cycle. Also, maybe used 4 weeks in one week off! When u first start start on 5th day of cycle. ...Read more
