I’ve been using the Nuva Ring for about a year now …

But my bf ejaculated in me for the first time and I’m afraid. Should I take a plan b even though I’m on birth control ? I’m just afraid

Good question.

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.

You could decide to take Emergency Contraception. Emergency contraception  is a hormonal emergency birth control method used to delay ovulation in the hopes of preventing pregnancy. The hormones prevent ovulation – the process when the ovaries release an egg – and thicken cervical mucus. Plan B is not an abortion pill. It will not harm or end a pregnancy; it will only work to delay ovulation to reduce the risk of a pregnancy. Emergency contraception can be taken up to 5 days after, and is more effective the sooner it is taken.

Remember, hormonal methods of birth control do not protect against STIs. Only condoms and dental dams can protect against STIs. You can get condoms and dental dams for free at Teen Clinic!
