    late period on nuvaring

    any possible reasons for this BESIDES pregnancy?
    I took out my ring on Sunday at 5 and it is Wednesday morning and I still have not had my period yet. I am really, really freaking out. My boyfriend and I do not use condoms since I am on the ring but he always, always pulls out.

    My period always starts the Thursday after I take it out, sometimes Wednesday night.

    Re: late period on nuvaring

    When I was on Nuvaring, sometimes my period came before I took it out, sometimes it came several days to a week after. I don't know if the hormones weren't strong enough for me or what, but it didn't seem to regulate my cycle like it does for most people!

    hey DKScully,

    I have kind of have the same problem as you. One month it takes a couple days to get my period then the next month i get it the friday before i take it out. I never thought of maybe not enough hormones. Does that mean i have a bigger chance of getting pregnant while on the ring if it is because of hormones?

    Re: late period on nuvaring

    I don't k now, I'd wondered that too. My gynecologist gave me extra estrogen because my uterine lining wasn't thick enough, and that seemed to help my cycle a BIT more normal for a while, anyway...

    Re: late period on nuvaring

    I've been on the ring for 3 yrs and my period was always a day or 2 or 3 later than it was supposed to be...It would be due on Wednesday and it wouldn't come til Saturday or Sunday...other times It would come just a day or 2 after I took it out. It always had me and my fiance freaking out too, but I never turned out to be pregnant...I would just wait and see.

    Re: late period on nuvaring

    Thanks for the responses, it came on Wednesday, I guess I was kind of jumping the gun. However, this time it only lasted for 4 days instead of my usual 6. I'm convinced it's just some weird thing with my body. Not too worried anymore )
