Was great for the first 6 months+ but then the last two weeks I've experienced itchy skin and burn red marks where the patch was - having to go back to the pill sadly. Before this would have rated 5/5. The mark it's left is so sore and feels like a burn and is scabbing up badly.

Helped a lot generally, my moods weren't stable and my periods came about once every 4-6 months and my skin felt incurable but being on the patch has helped ease all my previous symptoms

The patch is great if you forget to take the pill. If you have sensitive skin avoid the patch as it can cause skin to blister and ooze liquid, the patch then falls off and skin is left with a red itchy mark than takes about a week to go away. In my case when the patch did fall off I did actually get pregnant, I wasn’t aware because I put a new patch on an the symptoms I had from the patch were the same as pregnancy so it took me 12 weeks to realise I was pregnant. Be careful if the patch falls off as you won’t be protected!!
