I accidentally left my ring in from Jan 24th to march 4th. I forgot to write the out date on calendar and totally forgot about it. That's 5 1/2 weeks in. I haven't had a period since I took it out on March 4th and today is march 20th. So my last period was Jan 16th-19th. I did not put in another ring due to my doctor saying make sure I'm not pregnant. I took 4 pee tests since last week. And all negative. I think i ovulated around March 13th to 15th due to all the egg white discharge. Could I have ovulated that quickly after not being on the hormones of birth control? Well Then yesterday march 19th I wiped and I had a few brown spots in discharge. My boyfriend and I had sex around March 9th and also March 17th. Could the brown (dried blood) discharge be my period coming finally or I've heard of implantation bleeding when an egg attaches to uterus. Idk what to do. If it was implantation bleeding I've read you should wait 2-7 days after to test. My doctor ordered me a blood test but I don't want to pay for Lab work if it's still to early or if I'm just all out of whack from leaving the nuvaring in to long, etc. I just normally bleed every time I take it out so I'm confused as to why I didn't bleed and still testing negative. As of tomorrow I will be 2 periods behind (missed). I'm just curious if this has happened to anyone else and if so what we're results and also any advice would be helpful. I'm divorced mom of an 8 year old and I've been with my boyfriend almost a year now so we aren't quite ready for a baby so yeah any advice. Thanks

Well, biggest advice, use protection until you find out for sure. Wait a few days, and take another test if no period. If the test is still negative and you have not started yet, go get your doctors test.
