Came off this tonight after 6 weeks as I literally can’t cope with the 24/7 constant anxiety anymore. My skin on my body has also been a little itchy but my face has also started randomly reacting to normal skincare and make up that I’ve been using for ages.

I’ve really enjoyed my experience on the Patch and love that I only have to apply it once a week. I’ve found the best place is the middle upper of the front of my thigh, I found it peeled off easily on my lower back. I’ve had no issues on the Patch and have even found losing weight through diet a lot easier than normal (compared to when I’ve been on the pill previously)
