irregular bleeding

i had irregular bleeding for 6 months plus. so my gyn put me on the nuva ring. i stopped bleeding for a week and i started bleeding again while the ring was still inside. is this normal

HI,
How are you? NuvaRing isa combined hormonal contraceptive vaginal ring that releases a low dose of a progestin and estrogen. LIke OCPs, this may also cause hormonal changes and may lead to side effects such as headache, weight gain and even possible breakthrough bleeding. However, I recommend that you inform your gynecologist about this for proper management. It is also best that you discuss the working diagnosis and management plan with him or her.   Take care and do keep us posted.
