Birth Control While Breastfeeding

Hi everyone! :)

I had a baby on August 27 and I had my 6 week check up on October 17. While there, my OB and I discussed birth control options and I left with a prescription for NuvaRing. I plan on starting it tonight, but a thought occurred to me - what will happen during the 1 week off of the NuvaRing? I know that's when you typically get a period, but I also know it's rare to menstruate while breastfeeding. Will it force me to menstruate? Or will nothing happen?

I know that everyone is different and reacts to these things differently. I was just hoping to maybe get some input on how others in my situation reacted. :)
