You can use the NuvaRing to skip your monthly withdrawal bleeding by either A. Keeping the ring in for 3 continuous weeks, then taking it out and replacing it with a new one, repeat. or B. Keeping the ring in for 4 continuous weeks, then taking it out and replacing it with a new one, repeat. In my opinion it is probably best to do this only for certain occasions, like a wedding or a camping trip, but I don't think there have been any actually health risks associated with it. Then again, the ring hasn't really been around that long. Remember to consult your doctor before you make any changes in your Birth Control regimen.

Contact your health care provider for advice specific to your situation. If you want to stop NuvaRing, it's fine to remove it early. There's no other reason that I can think of in which removing NuvaRing early makes sense.

Sometimes you can miss a period when using hormonal contraception. If you haven't made any mistakes using NuvaRing in the past month, there's no need for concern.

If you did make a mistake in your NuvaRing use this month, or if you're having symptoms of pregnancy, take a pregnancy test. Insert the next NuvaRing on schedule regardless of whether you had bleeding after removing NuvaRing or not. Keeping on the schedule without regard to bleeding is important for NuvaRing's effectiveness.
