What was your experience with it?
I've been on it almost a month and the only thing I don't like is that all my clothing lint sticks around it making it really dirty, and that I'll have to be off of it for a while before I can get my wisdom teeth taken out.



But DH says I have been a royal b***h ever since I've been on it. I don't really see it..
I do smoke a few cigs a day so I know that ups my risk for blood clots. I'm kind of considering going back to the pill.

I never tried it, but by best friend was on it for several months and she hated it. She hated the lint rings from the adhesive, and occasionally the patches would curl, making her wonder if they were even working.



No thanks!

This! Then I got pregnant & I always wondered if it was because it curled all the time

I was on it and loved it aside from the vomitting the first day or two I started it. However I would take it off at the end of the week and shower and put my new one on but I started getting careless about putting it back on immediately after and now I have a 5 year old.

It was the only birth control that didn't give me terrible side effects.The only thing that bothered me was the lint ring, since having my daughter though I got mirena and no complaints.

I was on it for about 4 years before I had Emma. The only thing I hated about it is it would roll down. But it worked for me

Well I just took mine off yesterday morning for my period week. Still haven't started my period. I'm also having some breast tenderness so I took a dollar test and it was negative. I was really freaked because I've been having increased 'phantom kicks' and I really though I may have gotten pregnant before getting on the patch.
I don't know where my period is though??
