I had Ortho Evra and I gained about 5 pounds. I went off it because my husband didn't trust it

I was on the patch a few years ago.. Honestly, I hated it. I don't remember if it made me gain weight or not, but It did fall off all the time. So I don't trust it.. and plus with all the bad things coming out about the patch, I woulldn't recommed it.. I'm actually surprised that its still on the market

I was on it before I got preggo with DS #2... I gained like 10 lbs (I was on it for 2 yrs). It worked wonderfully for us! I came off the patch in Jan and at the end of Feb I got my BFP.

Weight gain would be about the least of your worries. Ortho Evra contains 60% more estrogen than regular combination birth control pills, so you've got all the regular risks to worry about except with higher chance of actually experiencing them (breast cancer, blood clots, heart attack, stroke, etc.) I'm amazed it's still on the market too.
