Sorry I message you guys so often, I really appreciate your services here [Frown]

I am supposed to start my Nuva ring insertion on Sunday...went to the clinic today and they are closed now for the weekend. I am kind of screwed if I want to start a new nuva cycle on Sunday at 8am. I am always prepared but after deciding to go off for a month, I am ready to get back on and I just missed the birth control train [Frown]

Do I need to wait a whole other cycle to start again? Or should I just start Monday as early as I can and then continue on my regular Nuva cycle as always? (Put in on Sunday 8am, wait 3 weeks, then remove on Sunday at 8am for a week then repeat). In the meanwhile I will use condoms religiously.

Thank you

If you get the ring a day late, you'll want to back up with condoms until you've had the new ring in for seven days, but you should be fine beyond that.

There's more information on the Nuvaring site:
