nuvaring out a little too long

I left my nuvaring out for 3 hrs and 15 mins, but no longer. I doubt that i wouldnt be protected because of those 15 mins but I just want to ease my mind. I know the hormones get absorbed into the blood stream so i dont think that the extra few mins would matter, but I just want to make sure.

If you were my patient, I would advise you that you should be OK! don't worry about the extra time.
Good luck!
