How long before NuvaRing becomes effective?
If you start using it during the first 5 days of your period, it will work right away and you won’t need backup birth control. But if you start on any other day of your cycle, it takes 7 days to be protected from pregnancy. So for the first week, use a condom or internal condom if you have vaginal sex.

Are you still protected on the 7 day break NuvaRing?
The standard way to use the ring is you leave it in for 21 days, then remove it and have a 7-day ring-free break. You’re protected against pregnancy during the ring-free break. After the 7-day break you then put a new ring in for another 21 days.
