Hi!
I always check a pregnancy test first, so you are on the right track with that one.  If it is negative, I would wonder if your hormones are a little out of whack possibly due to your recent use of the Nuva ring.  In your case, I would probably wait a month or two to see if things are going to sort themselves out.  If you don't start having regular periods, I would then start investigating for things like thyroid problems, elevated prolactin levels, and some basic tests for PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome).

Good luck with your visit on Saturday.

Hope this helps!
Dr B
