I went to the doc today and they switched me from the pill to the patch because I am very bad at remembering to take a pill everyday. Anyone else on the patch? Just wondering how it has worked for you.. or if you have had any problems or anything.

Hi,

I was on the patch for 15 months and loved it!! I didn't have any scared or anything!! It's alot better then having to worry about taking a pill everyday!! Now that I'm off because we are TTC, my cycles haven't been back to normal. I stopped using them in Jan. I think it will just take me a few months to get back to normal.

Angie

Thanks, that makes me feel better. I'm kinda nervous when it comes to switching like that, cause I can't really afford another baby right now. I had just heard a few paople say they didn't like the patch so it make me kinda leary. But we will see how it works!!!

I used the Ortho Patch for 6 months. Overall I liked it. Having to deal with your b/c ones a week is great but some drawl backs for me where:
1. The corners always started to come up.....and supposely this can lesson its effictiveness.

2. I usually placed it on my lower tummy, or lower back side/bottom to concel but it always left lots of sticky gunk from adhesive and I would have an outline of this gunk that would turn black when I removed the patch. It would take a couple days to get it it all off.

3. My main reason for switching back to the pill.....I was getting naseuos. I get naseuos on both but at least with the pill I have better control by taking my pill with my meal.

Good luck...let us know how it worked for you or any tips. I wouldn't mind going back.
