Using nuva ring without break, skipping periods. Having heartburn, back pain. Pregnancy chances?

Hi, I have been on nuva ring for about 4 months. i typically leave the ring in for four weeks and insert a new one at the end of the fourth week so that I skip my husband and i do not use condoms and for over a week i have had heartburn and back pain everyday. Since i do not have a period each month i do not know if i am late. Could i be pregnant?

Greetings of the day

It's unlikely that you could be pregnant. An urine pregnancy test is advisable for your reassurance.

It's good to use birth control appropriately, instead of getting worried.

Wishing you healthy life

Take care
