Am i pregnant?

okay so i’ve been on the NuvaRing for about 6 months now. Last month i was 2 or 3 weeks late putting it in due to issues with getting it from my Pharmacy. I had sex while i wasn’t on the NuvaRing but he said he pulled out. I put the NuvaRing in the week I usually get my period so i know I’d go a month without my period. i’m having cramps like period cramps now. Could that be signs of a pregnancy or is that okay?

The cramps could be because of the Nuvaring. Remember that you're putting a foreign object in to your body so your body could react to that by cramping. Since it's so close to your period the cramps might be because you're getting ready to start.
I recommend you see your gynecologist to tell him/her what happened. They might want to do a blood test to see if you're pregnant. Blood tests can detect very early pregnancies.
Since there's a chance you might be pregnant I highly recommend you see your Dr. Being pregnant and having the Nuvaring can be dangerous. I'm not trying to scare you. I just want you to be perfectly safe.
