Hi Fdelarosa,

Sometimes, after stopping your birth control, you may have an irregular period for the next few months, until you begin to ovulate regularly then you'll have them every month like you used to. Since you've taken pregnancy tests, I definitely think the missed periods are because you've recently stopped Nuvaring in March. Remember that when you come off birth control, your period can come back right away or take a few months to regulate itself. Usually by 4-6 months it's back to normal.

Best wishes,
