So I got the patch and it says to start it around your period like the Sunday after the first day. Well last Sunday was technically the first Sunday and I'm 6 weeks pp so I don't know if I will even have another period soon. Am I gonna screw anything up hormones wise if I start it this Sunday? Or do I NEED to do it when it says to?

i think the days it tells you to start is so that it doesnt screw your body up trying to readjust your period.



i would do it when it says so, otherwise i dont know what happens :S

I started mine the day after I got off my period. Changed it once a week for three weeks then would take it off & automatically start my period the following day. I don't think you'll mess anything up. It's suppose to help regulate periods anyways.

Meh I would just start it, you just might have some spotting during the first month, and use protection as long as your doctor told you to, (at least a week but up to a month). I would rather that then get pregnant lol.
