Brief Answer:
You should put one Nuva ring now and leave it for three weeks.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

To continue to have pregnancy protection, you must insert a new ring 1 week after the last one was removed.

So, after the off week you should put it one now and leave it for three weeks.

NuvaRing is used in a 4-week cycle.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
