Hi.
Thanks for your query,
Nuva ring releases ethinylestradiol and etonogestrel (21 days on 7 days off). So it works like OCP. With nuva ring the cycle control is good and its contraceptive efficacy is also good. If you are late by > or = to 1 days then you need backup contraception for additional safety. How ever in your case unprotected sex was done during period and after 1 day. So practically chances of pregnancy are negligible, however not 100 % excluded. Breast tenderness and minor cramping are not indicative of pregnancy.
Best of luck..

Hope it helps...
