According to the manufacturer of NuvaRing:
"Unlike the pill, NuvaRing requires no daily dosing so you can get effective monthly protection from pregnancy without having to think about taking it every day. In a given 4-week cycle, NuvaRing must be inserted into your vagina, removed after 3 weeks (21 days), and a new ring inserted 1 week (7 days) later."
"Your healthcare provider will explain how to insert NuvaRing. Later, you’ll insert it yourself at home. You’ll wear the ring for three weeks and then remove it for one week. During this last week, you’ll likely get your period. You’ll insert a new ring when that week is over."
Missing her periods is a serious issue which must be checked up on by a doctor.
