I am on Nuva Ring but I still think I could be pregnant ?

I'm on NuvaRing but I still think I could be pregnant?!
i've been on nuva ring since the beginning of july (3 weeks in 1 week out method) but i've been slightly emotional, have stretch marks below my belly button, and slight weight gain (and im on a diet). i've never missed a put in/ take out time for the ring so i know im using it correctly. could i be pregnant? should i get tested or am i over reacting?

Hi Lyn,
welcome to HCM.
Most likely you are over reacting, because being emotional, stretch marks, weight gain are not indicative of pregnancy. More over you are following the instructions properly.
Still if the doubt persists, the best way would be to get a pregnancy test done once you miss a period.
Wish you all the best.
