Started using Nuvaring, feel PMS-y (cramps, breast pain, moody) now. Is this normal?

As per my gyno's instructions, I inserted the Nuvaring this past Sunday (the Sunday after my period, which coincidentally was just about a week after the start of my last period). Starting yesterday I'm having mild uterine cramping and somewhat medium-level breast pain--the sort of symptoms I normally get about a week before my period starts (which then worsen in intensity until the actual menses). I know YANMD, but I couldn't find any other info about this. I certainly hope it doesn't mean that my period is about to start (again!) (WAY early!).
Also this birth control thing is new to me (always used condoms before), and my Dr. gave me two sample rings to start out with to try it out, so if your answer is to take it out, that's no problemo.
