The nuva ring should have been inserted within the first five days of your menstrual period. If you inserted it after your period ended, then it is best if you use a back up method for one month. This does not necessarily mean you are not protected, yet the odds are greater that you are not since you inserted it late.
If you have further questions or concerns you should consult your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more
Got my birth control takin out Thursday, & I didn't wait for my first period to have sex, for the first time Sat. When can I take a pregnacy test?
Hi there! I have a concern I had sex on my 2nd day of my period while im on birth control, but I took the pill late before we had intercourse, it should?
Pregnancy unlikely: The second day of your period is not a high-risk time for pregnancy. Even if you missed the day's pill altogether, it would be unlikely that you would get pregnant on this day. Idealy, you would take your pills the same time every day but they will still prevent pregnancy even if you are a few hours late occasionally. Best wishes! ...Read more

If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more
I'm taking birth control pills. I was off my period for about 4 days then I had sex. I bleed during the second time of intercourse. What does it mean?
Cervical bleeding: Sometimes, especially with deep penetration, you may have bleeding during or after sex. If it keeps happening, though, you should probably be checked for an infection or other abnormality of the cervix. Also, on BCPs, sometimes the lining of the uterus is unstable, and if you have an orgasm, some of the lining may break down and you will bleed. If is a recurring problem, you should get checked. ...Read more

Not exactly: Birth control pills take one full cycle to be effective and you should be using other methods (such as condoms) until you have completed the first pack. That being said, it is unlikely you are ovulating 3 days into your cycle, so you should not get pregnant from this encounter. Good luck! ...Read more

I am spotting 7 days after my period ended. I did have intercourse when period ended. Also I stopped birth control last month.
Periods off the Pill: Can often change in the first few months after stopping the birth control pill (which I assume is what you mean by "birth control"). The uterine lining can get thicker and may not shed completely leading to spotting post-period. See your GYN if your cycles do not normalize after 3 months off the pill. Of course you can ovulate at any time and get pregnant, so do a home test if you are unsure. ...Read more
