Pinkish vaginal discharge after placing nuvaring. Pregnancy?

I m on Nuvaring , have been for 2 months. A few days ago I experienced a pink discharge with mucus , never forgetting to put my ring in after sex. Yesterday, I forgot to put my ring back in after 11 hours. I put it back in but later, I was spotting. Now, it is reddish brown and light. Could this be pregnancy? Or just breakthrough?

Thanks for the query.

There is more possibility for breakthrough bleeding.
As you delayed putting the ring for 11 hours better to use some other form of contraception for one week to avoid any possible risk of pregnancy.
This spotting will usually subside soon.
If you want to get clarify regarding the pregnancy better to go for pregnancy test once.
Take care.
