The patch is a combined hormonal contraceptive method containing oestrogen and progestogen. It is a thin beige plaster, made of three layers of plastic, which is stuck to the skin and changed weekly. It's a great option if you want the benefits of the combined pill, but don't want to have to remember to take a pill every day. The risk of blood clots with the patch may be slightly higher when compared to other combined methods.

It’s fine.. maybe. if you’re susceptible to anxiety at all then i don’t recommend. Random crying fits. Had to admit myself to the ER because of my second sudden panic attack since starting. I’ve never dealt with that before. I have only been on the patch for 3 weeks, perhaps the side effects would have subsided if i waited it out but im not willing to risk it.

The only problem I had using the birth parches was that it gave me an allergy and would turn my skin red and dry. I had to stop using it and switched to the birth control implant which is a way better method.
