I took my patch off 2 days early. Because I was going to restart the whole thing again because I messed it up. I was meant to take it off on Sunday the 27th of July but took it off 2 days early the 25th of July. I had unprotected sex today the 1st of august. Ive just remembered I was meant to stick a new patch on today and start a new 4 week cycle. but I forgot. What's going to happen? Was I protected when I had sex? I took my patch off 2 days early. Me and my boyfriend are really panicking
Ok, you can't take it off early, and you must put a patch back on in 7 days. So whether or not you were protected is questionable. I would say there is no guarantee. Stick a new one on. You have to use birth control the way its supposed to be used. You can't manipulate it to suit you.
