In brief: The

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.
