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.

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 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.

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?

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.

How long after taking nuvaring out can you get pregnant? Also, does Nuvaring have more chances to get pregnant with twins?

Nuva -ring: It's possible to ovulate within 2 weeks after taking the Nuva-ring out but more commonly would be about 4-6 weeks. No increase risk of twins.

I left my nuvaring in a week longer than usual, left it in 4 instead of 3.Have had unprotected sex since removal can I get pregnant?

Possibly: There is enough hormonal reserve in the NuvaRing to last about 30 days instead of the 21 that you wold use it for as directed. However, when you take it out, hormone levels return to normal quickly and you are at risk for pregnancy.

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.

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

Was supposed to take out nuvaring out on the 27th, took it out 4 days later, had unprotected sex after the 27th before taking out. Can I get pregnant?

Was supposed to take out nuvaring out on the 27th, took it out 4 days later, had unprotected sex after the 27th before taking out. Can I get pregnant?

Not likely: Although pregnancy is always possible when having sex since no contraception method is perfect, the risk in this case is the normal risk for nuva-ring. As long as you put the new ring in on time.

I have to take out my nuvaring on the 15 if I don't take it out and I have sex on those days is possible for me to get pregnant?

I have to take out my nuvaring on the 15 if I don't take it out and I have sex on those days is possible for me to get pregnant?

???: You should leave it in for the full 3 weeks duration of treatment. After you do, it should induce you to have a period. Having sex while on your period, in addition to being messy, is unlikely to result in pregnancy. You should take a multivitamin daily in any event.

I am using the nuvaring as birthcontrol & was supposed 2 take it out the 12th & did not til the 14th. Could I still get pregnant I had unprotected sex on the 15th. Could I be pregnant?

I am using the nuvaring as birthcontrol & was supposed 2 take it out the 12th & did not til the 14th. Could I still get pregnant I had unprotected sex on the 15th. Could I be pregnant?

Probably not: The ring is good for three weeks, but would also work for a fourth week if desired. It would not affect the birth control by leaving the ring in an extra two days (or a week).

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?

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.

I just switched to nuvaring from oral combination birth control pills. How long will it take for the nuvaring to prevent pregnancy?

No waiting: If you switched straight from the pills to the ring without missing any active pills or being late starting the ring, there should be no waiting period.

TTC! I've had a regular cycle after stopping Nuvaring but no pregnancy? WHY?

TTC! I've had a regular cycle after stopping Nuvaring but no pregnancy? WHY?

Asking Too Soon: Fertility testing is not even offered until one has gone one year of failed attempts to get pregnant. You are only one cycle in. It is way too soon to be asking this question.

How to get pregnant with nuvaring on?

What?: There isn't a way to intentionally get pregnant while using the nuvaring. If you want to get pregnant - then I would suggest not using your nuvarings.
