What should you do if your period doesn't start after you take the NuvaRing out?

If you've had any misuse of the ring, take a pregnancy test to make sure you aren't pregnant. If it's negative, insert the new ring at the scheduled time, whether or not your period came. Hormonal contraception can sometimes lighten the uterine lining so much that no withdrawal bleeding occurs. If this happens again, and is disturbing to you, contact your health care provider about other birth control options. If it doesn't bother you, don't worry about it -- just continue the ring as scheduled regardless of bleeding.
