I have been on the nuva ring for almost a year and last period came late, very late. I had my ring back in when it came. I just took it out Sunday and here it is going on Saturday and I still have not gotten my period. Also my breasts are tender, and I have been having headaches and nausea, and vomitting late at night and early morning. I took a pregnacy test last week and it was messed up and I am too afraid to take another. I go in two weeks for my annual exam and not sure what to do. I have heard of people becoming pregnant on the Nuva Ring but I dont know anyone personally. I have never had any problems with ring before this. I am scared. What should I do.
Well yes, all contraceptives can fail some time. So yes, symptom wise its possible that you are pregnant. If first test was negative, you’ll need to take an ultrasensitive urine test or a blood test to measure HCG levels. If these tests are negative, then either you have an ectopic pregnancy or the symptoms are due to contraceptive withdrawal. Do discuss this with your gynecologist. Take care!
