Experience

I was put on this to slow down cyst growth and tricycled on it. Worked perfectly for 4 years but then I started to react to the patch and have eczema/dry skin where the patch was for 4 weeks after removing. I then started to bleed continuously but lightly and had migraines – I should never have been put on it due to family history of DVT. Up until the last 3 months of using Evra it was perfect for me.
