I’m on the ring and once the three weeks is up and I take it out….

…….if I have unprotected sex are the hormones still in my body?

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.

This protection includes the week when the person takes the Nuva Ring out, as long as it is being changed on the right day.

Remember, hormonal forms of birth control like The Ring, do not protect against STIs. Only condoms and dental dams can protect against STIs.
