NuvaRing Breakthrough Bleeding

NuvaRing

If you are using NuvaRing, the vaginal contraceptive ring on an extended regimen, and you experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting [for at least 5 consecutive days], remove the ring for 4 days, store it, and then reinsert the ring. [Use a backup birth control method for those 4 days.]

For how long is the ring then good? Total 30 days from first insert? Or good for 30 days from reinsertion?

Fortunately, I haven't had any breakthrough bleeding since my first month or so of continuous NuvaRing use. In fact, I removed it for about 5 days a couple of times last year at my doctor's request, and I didn't even bleed then. It's a beautiful thing!

I've had lots of issues with my nuvaring. I didn't use it in May and had heavy pregnancy symptoms and no period. Then when I restarted after seeing a doctor I had a horribly heavy period and now am having lots of issues with breakthrough bleeding especially when we have sex which has been embarrassing. I'm considering switching back to ortho evra patch.

I'm on my second month and have break through bleeding this time around. About 10 days now and I'm supposed to have my period in 5 days from now. I'm sure I won't stop bleeding until my official period is supposed to be over, so my guess is that I will bleed for 20 days straight! I called my doctor and he said to try it for one more month and see what happens. That the hormones are adjusting. If I get bleeding again next month, I am so not doing this anymore! Condoms, here I come!

I'm not supposed to have my period for another month, because I'm doing the every 3 month period plan. I have been bleeding for 5 days! I'm having horrible PMS symptoms, and mood swings. I feel like I'm pregnant again! I was told its just the hormones adjusting, but how long does it take for them to adjust? Ive been on the ring for 2 months, and I've bleed for most of the 1st month, and I was thrilled when it finally stopped, but now its starting again!

I think you guys meant 28 days instead of 30. Just 4 full weeks from the date of insertion, correct?

I have been on the nuvaring for almost 5 years now. Last year I had some breakthrough ovulation (noticed by cyst formation) but even after seeing my doctor he recommended I stay on the nuvaring. I just inserted my latest nuvaring one week and 3 days ago and starting yesterday, I have had thick "old blood" discharge. Should I take the nuvaring out? Or continue with it in until my three weeks are up?
