Last night I had a very long sex session. I am on NuvaRing as birthcontrol, and it's not supposed to be out of the vagina for more than three hours per day. It states that if it is out for longer than three hours to use a back up method for the following 7 days. I can't find anywhere what to do if you take it out, have sex AND THEN not put it back in for oh lets say.. four hours.
Yes, that is right.. I left it out for about four hours when I was only supposed to have it out for three at the longest. It's Sunday here right now, and I cannot call anyone who would know the answer.. So I am hoping one of you lovely ladies knows.
Does anyone know if I need to get EC?

what do you mean when you say that her risk is slight enoungh that EC would not make a big difference? I thought that a risk was a risk. Please explain as i am on hormonal birth control and i always assumed that a risk was a risk, and there was no such thing as a slight one. Sorry, i am just confused
OK, that would make sense after all. I didnt know that Plan B's effectiveness rates were lower thasn that of the pill. Thanks once again for educating me! Posts: 127 | From: Louisiana | Registered: Aug 2005
