Skip period on Nuvaring?

Does anyone know if you can skip your period when you're on nuvaring? I used to skip it every now and then (if something important was gong on) when I was on the pill; my doctor told me to just ignore the week of placebo pills and start a new pack right away. Could I do this on the ring? Instead of taking it out for a week, just put a new one in right away? Thanks for your help!

Yes you can skip your period. You can do the 3 week and put a new one in or you can even go 4 weeks and then put a new one in.
