Experience

I used with the patch because the side effects listed seemed less severe than the other contraceptives available and I am happy to say that was absolutely the case for me. Aside from a little nausea and vomit right at the start, I had no issues or side effects for the 4 years that I used it. I highly recommend this.

Experience after taking

I had a few months of no periods which was kind of a shock seen as my periods were always so regular with the patch. But after a while they came back as normal.

Had a similar experience?
