[QUOTE=daisyblue]I just started Nuvaring a little over three weeks ago. I had been on Yasmin for 2 years before that. My day to take out the nuvaring was this past Saturday (4 days ago). How long should I expect to wait before my period starts? I haven't had any bloating, cramping, moodiness, bleeding, or anything yet. Normally with Yasmin it took 2-3 days after the last active pill.

I don't want to sound bad but my boyfriend is coming to visit this weekend (he lives over 3 hours away) and I really don't want to have my period when he's here. I know I'm not pregnant because I haven't seen him since before my last period right before I started with Nuvaring. Is it too late to just put in another ring and skip this period or is that not going to help? I really don't know what to do at this point.[/QUOTE]

Your period should come 2-5 days after taking out NuvaRing. However, it's not uncommon to skip a period when first starting any method of birth control.

You can try to skip this period and put a new ring in now, however, you'll need to put your next ring in earlier, as well. For example, if Friday was your start day originally and you put the ring in today, Wednesday would now be your start day.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 12:37 AM.
