My change day is saturday (in 3 days) I started bleeding, enough to use a tampon. Should I take my patch off or keep it on til saturday and then go my patch free week??? I think this may have happened because last month i took my patch off in week 2 cause I was super sick and started thinking I was pregant (turns out it was the flu) A few days after taking it off I started to get a heavy period. After that I kept on my regular cycle (3 weeks) PLease help!

Do not take your patch off. You stay to the same schedule of patches no matter if you bleed or don't bleed. Once you've started on them, when you bleed has nothing to do with your patch, meaning you do not respond by doing something with your patch if you bleed, or not doing something if you don't bleed. If you use the patch correctly you are not going to get pregnant.
