I'm still new to the patch, its my first month. On the 3rd patch. Started spotting mid second patch, now bleeding along with lower back ache and cramping has increased. Blood comes with weird string like blood clots. I cry easily to almost anything whether good or bad. Feel generally negative which is unlike me.

Overall the patch is very good. I do get skin irritation but I just ensure I move it around in different areas. I have noticed that loosing weight is extremely difficult as well as being lethargic also. Other than this, evra is a great source of protection.
