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.

Loved this contraception at the beginning. Skin is clearer than ever, I only get the odd spot leading up to my “bleed”, haven’t noticed much weight gain (probably natural weight gain as I’ve aged but nothing rapid). My bleed is like clockwork every month on a Tuesday and usually lasts 4 days (easy to track). Although I’ve been on it coming up to 3 years now and think it’s time for a change. Weird discharge, lack of sex drive, dryness and terrible mood swings and depression - not sure if it’s just me or the patch, but I will cry over the smallest things. I feel so depressed. Another thing to note is everyone will ask what’s on your arm, and I went to Spain last week and my patch fell off twice with the heat that I’ve just had to take it off and either restart or change to the pill as the pill won’t fall off.
