Experience

I’ve been on the patch since I was 18. I love it! The only issue is your skin getting irritated from it or it sticking to your underwear sometimes. I’ve gained some weight recently (unrelated to the patch) and I may have to try a new type of contraception as it says the patch can be less effective for people over 198 lbs. But so far I haven’t noticed any changes in its effectiveness. I’ll be really sad to change from the patch because it’s worked really well for me!
