Nuvaring cycle disrupted, now depression ?

I've been on nuvaring for approx 3 years. I recently disrupted my cycle by forgetting to put it in after sex. (Ended up being out for 4 days, then having a period, then inserting a new nuvaring) However, within a day or 2 after I left it out, I started feeling VERY depressed. Although I have not felt like that in YEARS, I tried to brush it off, because I couldnt see a reason why, there was no extra stress going on. Of COURSE when I started spotting, it hit me: i had most likely been feeling weird from my nuvaring not being in, and having my horomones off balance.

Now it's been over three weeks since the removal of the nuvaring/cycle disruption, and I can't shake the depression. I try to ignore it, but I feel SO hopeless. I don't care about anything, no motivation. Family... I've had family in town and I can barely get myself out of bed to visit them and pretend like I care to be there. Same with work, which says something because honestly I love my job.  I'm also sleeping ridiculous amounts. And if I'm alone, lord help me, because the tears just start coming, and before I know it I'm a blubbering mess for no reason. It's driving me crazy.

Prior to all of this (while on nuvaring), I would typically get emotional within the few days before my period. So I'm wondering... can the nuvaring suddenly cause this extreme depression if the cycle is disrupted? Any information appreciated.
