For those on the patch or that have used it,did anyone get pg while on it? or know anyone who did? also what do you think about the patch and all that is said it could cause?[/b]
Ortho-Evra delivers 60% more estrogen to a woman's body than regular combination Pills. That's serious business. The reason they modified the Pill so that it contains lower doses of estrogen is because of the problems it was causing - breast cancer, blood clots, heart attack, stroke. Those risks cannot be ignored because of the significant amount of estrogen the patch releases. The risks are real. Even if you don't know anyone who has had a bad experience personally, it's not a guarantee that you will be safe from the risks. Women have died from the patch. That's not information to be dismissed.


Patch Linked to 17 Deaths
