… I am still on it and to be on schedule I need to put a new one in today. Is that normal and okay to do?
Absolutely! Thankfully, your period will not damage the NuvaRing or cause infection. The most important thing is to stay on schedule. If the NuvaRing is inserted a day or two late, your hormonal levels could fluctuate, causing ovulation and increasing the risk of pregnancy. It’s healthy to insert your next NuvaRing on the correct day whether or not you’re still menstruating. If used correctly, consistently, and all of the time, the ring can be up to 99.7% effective!
