I been using the Ortho Evra contraceptive patch for a months now. I was wondering when would be the perfect time to put on a new patch after my period. Do I just put it on on the seventh day of my week off? Because I been putting it on on the 8th day. Also what if I'm still bleeding on the seventh day? And what happens if I put it on a day early and im still bleeding?

I also wanted to know if the patch still prevents contraception on the 3rd week when its off or should I just not have relations that week? And do I need to wait the seven days of unprotected sex everytime I put on a new patch ?
