I was supposed to insert a new nuvaring last night

Patient: I was supposed to insert a new nuvaring last night but ended up being about 2 hours late inserting it and I had unprotected sex yesterday. Do I need an emergency contraceptive or was I still protected?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.You have not provided any details of your menstrual cycle and dates which would have been helpful.Nuvaring does start offering immediate protection, the chances of pregnancy is miniscule in your case. So, do not worry.Hope this was helpful,Regards.
