Answers to Questions on Etonogestrel/Ethinyl Estradiol Vaginal Ring

What If I Forget to Remove Etonogestrel/Ethinyl Estradiol Vaginal Ring?

If you accidentally leave etonogestrel/ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring in place for up to an additional week (four weeks total), you will still be protected from pregnancy. Simply remove the ring, take your usual one-week, ring-free break, and start a new ring in seven days. If etonogestrel/ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring has been in place for more than four weeks, you may not have been adequately protected against pregnancy. You should make sure you are not pregnant, and you must use a backup method of birth control (such as condoms) for seven days after starting a new etonogestrel/ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring. A diaphragm should not be used as a backup method of birth control, since the etonogestrel/ethinyl estradiol vaginal ring may physically prevent proper placement of the diaphragm.
