My Contraceptive patch fell off a day and a half early & i have put a new one on immediately. In the leaflet i was given about the patch it says to put a new patch on and keep your patch change day the same however I feel like its a waste of a patch if I only have it on for one day! Can I leave this new patch on for the full 7 days or do I need to change it on my normal change day? I dont mind if it means my patch change day is different from now on :)
(my patch fell off on Tuesday morning & i was meant to change it on Wednesday evening.)
I agree with you. And insurances don't allow for this either and aren't going to pay for your next patches early. As long as you can deal with a new change day, I don't see anything wrong with doing it your way.

yes, you can do this. It is okay to change your patch change day to an earlier day, just not a later day.
