I was on Nuvaring for 3 months before taking it out April 15. I had a "period" from April 17-April 19, and then had unprotected sex April 23.
Since then, I've had nausea, swollen and tender breasts, sensitivity to smells, and have vacillated between eating everything in site to not having an appetite from the nausea.
I started experiencing really light spotting from May 8 until today. I'm spotting light to dark brown, and it has not been accompanied by cramps or anything remotely close to what I feel when I have a normal period. Today would be when I'm supposed to get my actual period, but I'm taking into account the fact I just got off the birth control and my periods could be irregular.
According to the Nuvaring website, you can start ovulating 13-28 days after you last remove the website, which does make pregnancy a possibility in my case. I'm in my early twenties in otherwise in good health.
So what do you think? Could be hormones just be really whacky or could I be pregnant? I figure I'll test next week to be sure.
