No I don't. I was on it for a year and did not get pregnant. I have been hearing alot of bad things about it though. I won't get back on it.

Pregnancy should be the least of your worries with the patch...

I thought it was pulled off of the market.

It's definately not off the market (I've got a patch on my butt right now!)

However, a lot of doctors are hesitant to prescribe it because the risks are higher than other hormonal methods - not different, just higher.

I used the patch for about 2 1/2 years. Never had a problem with it nor did I get pregnant while using it.

One of the girls in my playroom is expecting again, and she was on the patch.

but now i would never have gone on it, had i known...

I didnt get pregnant on it, but with all the bad things I have been hearing about it.. there is no way I would consider using it again.
