welcome to health care magic.
you should take an i pill if it has been less than 72 hours since you last had intercourse. the ring will be slight ineffective for the first week during which you should use barrier contraception . since you started usng the ring late you need barrier contraception for 7 days because by then the hormones in the ring will suppress the axis from the brain to te ovaries so ultimately ovulation is suppressed.
