Hey Scarleteen,

I have a question. I've been on nuvaring for about 5 months and I was supposed to take my ring out on Saturday afternoon but I was at work and I planned to take it out when I got home later that evening. I had a bad day at work and I was angry so I didn't remember to take my ring out until the following morning.

I read the info on the website and the info packet that came with it but it only states if u leave it in for an extra week, not an extra day.

So my question it still the same about the week off and should I put in it on Sunday instead of my usual day Saturday? Can I still put it in on Saturday or would that mess my cycle up since I took the last ring out on Sunday?

I hope my question makes sense and thanks for your answers in advance!

Sorry we haven't gotten to this question sooner.

The truth is that i don't know the answer. I would assume that one day wouldn't really matter all that much, and if it were me, i'd stick to Saturdays. I would think that if it were that big of a deal, they'd mention it on their website or in the prescription insert-y thing.

Right now i think your best bet would be to call your doctors office or your pharmacist. B/c, as i said, i don't really have the answer for you (only what *I* would do, and i don't always do the right thing either )

I will leave a note in the Advocate Area asking if anyone else knows ... In the meantime, make some phone calls and see if you can find the answer before i do. And please, if you get an answer, do come back and let me know ... !
