Is it possible to delay your period for one week... My period just started yesterday. I use the nuva ring as birth control... my next cycle should be around may 13 and i would like to delay until May 21 if possible

Hello! My name is***** and I will take the time to answer your question =)

No guarantee this will work... but you can try to leave the Nuvaring in for one extra week (total of 4 weeks) then take it out.... OR replace it after three weeks with a NEW Nuvaring, then remove that after one week to get your period. By providing one week of extra hormones, this will hopefully delay your period by a week .
