Experience

Loved the patch, very convenient with only having to change it once a week. You can put it anywhere on your body, if you swim regularly, put it somewhere where it’s covered securely while swimming. I became allergic to the glue unfortunately – likely a reaction to the glue vs the chlorine as I swam 4-5 times a week at the time. I’d highly highly recommend this to people who don’t want to take a pill everyday but want the benefits a combi pill could provide.
