I have had this Nuvaring in for roughly 3 weeks…

…..My partner and I had condom less sex and he ejaculated inside. Am I still 98-99% protected from pregnancy in this case?


The birth control ring, or NuvaRing, is a hormonal birth control method used to effectively prevent pregnancy. The hormones prevent ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – and thicken cervical mucus.

If someone has been on the Nuva Ring for at least 7 days, they can be up to 99% protected from pregnancy even if ejaculation in the vagina occurs.  But in order for the ring to consistently be effective, the person would need to make sure to change it on time every month.

So as long as you are changing it on time, it would still be 99% effective. Remember, the ring does not protect against STIs. Only condoms and dental dams can do this.
