Just a little bit of background, I was raised in a christian family who's beliefs were always to keep sex until marriage, and while my opinions do differ I did wait nearly a year before having sex with my current boyfriend. I don't expect my choices to be questioned, but I did think it through, and I have had no regrets. Long story short, I have had sex once with only a condom, and shortly after that I started on the Nuvaring (pregnancy paranoia, don't get me wrong it's great, but I have a degree to get and aren't ready emotionally to be a mother) I was not exhibiting signs of pregnancy, nor was I pregnant (Just background info). I started mid-cycle, and waited the three weeks before removing the ring.
Once I removed the ring, I spotted for a day, and then began to bleed. It was heavier than my previous periods before the ring, and I did have some cramping. I decided to cut my period short by a couple of days, as I'm a competitive athlete and have an upcoming competition this weekend. I removed the ring Sunday and replaced it Thursday morning. It is Friday, and I am still experiencing some bleeding. Does anyone notice any trends in when their period stops in relation to when they reinsert the ring? The amount I'm bleeding is probably about half of what I was yesterday, perhaps less, but I'm kind of hoping it will have gone away completely by tomorrow.
Thanks a lot :)
