Have been using Nuvaring for many years, leave mine in for 4 weeks, is it ok to skip the week off for 1 month? Any ill side effects of doing so?

In brief: Ring removal

can leave you unprotected unless using alternate double barrier techniques:condoms PLUS spermicidal foam, gel, sponge etc.
. Additionally, you may experience breakthrough heavy bleeding and cramping.
