Aluminum wouldn't be effected by the magnetic field. There is no metal of any kind in the patch.

DRUGS.COM: “Climara patch…burn your skin if you wear [it] during MRI.” FDA ADVISORY: “Certain transdermal patches (medicated patches applied to the skin)…contain aluminum or other metals … can overheat during …MRI scan & cause skin burns.” Also,what about a double strength MRI?
