I have used the evra patch to prevent my period for 3 months now. However, I have been experiencing breakthrough bleeding since week 1 of my patch this month. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is when I change my patch for week 3 and I am still experiencing this. discharge is dark brown, followed with some cramping at times. Is this a serious problem?
No, its nothing unusual in the beginning of birth control. Its just old blood. Just keep using the patch as scheduled.
