okay, this may be dumb since I have been reading many of the posts and they all sound like what I am about to ask...
Last Saturday a kid I'm seeing and I had sex. I am on birth control and have been for over a year, and it is wonderful and helps me a lot with menstraul issues.
We did not use a condom and I'm not ever sure if he came in me.... My question is am I safe, Or is the morning after pill a good idea?
This morning I have felt a little nauseous, but that is proably nerves? Just some reasurance would be nice, thanks!

If you have been on combined hormonal birth control for more than a cycle, you don't ovulate.

So, per pregnancy, if I'm understanding you've been using the NuvaRing for over a year, you do not have high risks, nor do you need EC.

You have, however, taken STI risks (as has your partner) which are also a concern, especialy since STI transmission is far more likely than pregnancy in your case.

No, you do not. That's the major way your birth control works, by inhibiting ovulation.

Why might you feel sick in the middle of the month? Hard to say. If it's every month, it just may be that at that point in the hormone cycle the ring creates, it doesn't sit so well with you. Or it could be something else entirely that has zip to do with your birth control or rperoductive system.

Most women who DO ovulate, for the record, don't feel sick because of ovulation.
