I'm not seriously concerned, but I thought checking might be a good idea. I inserted the Nuvaring on a Sunday at 12:05 pm for the first time and removed it three weeks later at on a Sunday at 11:45 am. The instructions said "approximately" the same time on the same day and I decided I was comfortable with having a window of around twenty minutes. Today, however, I ended up sleeping in and didn't insert the new ring until 12:55 pm. Is this something I should be concerned about? How much of window do I have for inserting and removing the ring? Minutes? Hours? Thanks!

With combined methods like the combined pill, patch and ring, your grace period is 12 hours. In order not to forget, you want to try and stick to around the same time of day each day (morning, afternoon, evening, etc.), but you have a twelve hour grace period.

So, you're all good. [Smile]
