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.

So at age 19 it could take 5-6 months before pregnancy and that would be normal. ...Read more
