I have currently been on the Nuvaring, and this week is my ring free week. I removed the ring on Monday morning.

Today I had protected intercourse with my partner, but as he pulled how, he didn't make sure to keep the condom around his penis, so it ended up being inside of me, but the end of the condom was hanging out. When he removed it he made sure the tip of the condom was okay. I asked him if any semen could of possibly made its way in, he said he doubted it.

So I put it off, later after the intercourse, we stayed nude,he later put the tip of his penis on my anus. It felt you can say something 'wet' I thought it may still be some semen, but he said his penis was clean.

My question is am I at risk of pregnancy? At the moment I feel lower back pain and lower abdominal pain, could this be a sign of my menstrual coming? Should I worry?

Penis-to-anus contact counts as genital-to-genital contact, so yes, there has been a risk. However, that risk is absolutely tiny.

This is because you've used the withdrawal method perfectly (because your partner did not ejaculate onto your anus, this counts as using the withdrawal method). In addition, you've also used your Nuvaring, which is an extremely effective at preventing pregnancy, including in the off week.

Together they give you 99.98% protection against pregnancy, so as I said, the risk is teeny tiny.

I'm afraid I can't tell you what's causing your back and abdominal pain, but it could very well be your withdrawal bleed coming (what we have instead of periods when we're on hormonal contraception is called a 'withdrawal bleed'), or some side effects of the Nuvaring being a new thing for you. If the pain persists, I'd see a doctor to check everything's as it should be.
