Nuvaring And Plan B

Condom broke, but I've been on nuvaring for the past 8 months. Should I consider taking a Plan B pill, or is the nuvaring enough protection?
Nuvaring: Nuvaring is one of the most effective contraceptives on the market with a 98-99%/year efficacy vs 85-88%/year with condoms if used correctly. The extra protection you derive with the concurrent use of condoms is more against the transmission of stis than contraception where the benefit is only marginal. Talk to your obgyn immediately who may be more familiar with your specific situation to be sure. ...Read more

When is nuvaring effective? I am 4th day with second nuvaring and I had unprotected sex with ejaculation. My doctor said I can get plan b, should I?
Probably working: Did you have the ring out for very long between the 2 nuva rings? If it was for y days or less, the chance of being pregnant is pretty low (very low, but not impossible). However, if it was for more than 7 days between the nuva rings, you should use the plan b, or ask your doctor a prescription for "ella" which can work a little better than Plan B depending on your weight. Also consider copper iud. ...Read more
I placed Nuvaring on Mon 7/28 Had unprotected sex on Fri Aug, 1st. Ovulation calculator says 8/1-8/6. Took plan B on Sun 8/3. Could I get pregnant stil?
Pregnancy: Nuvaring is not guaranteed to be effective until 7 days after placement. Plan B is about 75-83% effective if used properly. Sex was during a time of higher pregnancy likelihood. So yes, in the above scenario it is possible to be pregnant, though unlikely. If the next period is missed, a pregnancy test should be taken to obtain status. ...Read more

Possible leak of semen from base of condom and into me. Been on nuvaring for over a year. Should I consider taking plan b? Possibility of pregnancy?
Plan b 12/8, period & nuvaring in 12/15, nr out 12/26, unprotected/no pulling out sex all thru jan. No period yet. What are the odds of pregnancy?
Hard to predict...: Can buy a home pregnancy test. The urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. ...Read more
Took Plan B 12-8. Was then perscribed and started NuvaRing 12-13. Constant bloating, cramping, constipation, light brown discharge, lower back pains..
9 days ago I took planb (12 hrs. After sex) and then I started nuvaring later that day, this week my breasts have been really tender. Is this normal?
Plan b: I suggest you get a pregnancy test since there is about 20- 25% failure rate even after appropriate use of plan b. It is not well documented that nuva-ring will cause breast symptoms. If anything your breast symptoms may be related to the stage of your menstrual cycle. Presumption apart, I also suggest you see a doctor. Thanks and good luck. ...Read more
