Experience

I have been using the patch for 5 years as a dairy allergy meant that I could no longer use the pill. Although I have been using it for a while, I still find it quite inconvenient. In the summer it comes off in the pool and in the winter it gets stuck on my tights. I always have to have one spare. On a few occasions I have forgotten to put it on for a few days and the nausea is awful - I also experienced nausea in the first three months of using it. However my skin has never been better and my periods are light and manageable. My sex drive plummeted though, so I am currently looking at alternative contraceptions.
