After you stop a hormonal birth control method like the pill, patch, or ring, you'll probably have your usual withdrawal bleeding, just as you had the month before. After that, you are likely to start ovulating in two to four weeks, and should get your next period in four to six weeks. If you had irregular periods before, they will probably go back to their previous habit. Otherwise, you can expect to settle back into your old pre-ring pattern within a couple of cycles.

Hormonal birth control makes your period lighter while you're on it, so you'll probably notice longer periods with more menstrual flow once you stop.

NuvaRing doesn't affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test. You can test no sooner than 10 days after sex.

Yes, stopping NuvaRing can cause spotting. When you decrease the hormone level in your body, spotting will occur.

Yes, stopping NuvaRing will normally cause bleeding. Just as you bleed when you remove NuvaRing after three weeks, you will have withdrawal bleeding after you stop NuvaRing permanently. Your regular menstrual pattern should restart within four to six weeks.
