I’ve tried sooo many contraceptions and this is the first one I’ve tried with very minimal side effects. My moods have been very stable, I have less PMS symptoms, my weight hasn’t changed and my sex drive hasn’t changed. When I want to hide the patch I just apply it to my lower belly where my undies would sit so that aspect is not a problem either.

Really great, massively better than the pill which I was on before. Doesn't massively effect my mood. Gives me a bit of skin irritation where the patch is but that is easily resolved by moving it each use. Very easy to use too, I only have to think about it once a week!

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.
