I've been on it for 5 or 6 months, and i just finished week 4 (the patch free week) and I forgot to apply my new patch. I put it on about 12 hours later than I usually would. My question is, should I use another form of contraceptive for the next 7 days or should I still be covered by the patch?
I would use backup protection just to be sure. Its kind of like forgetting a pill, it increases your risk a little bit. It doesn't hurt to be safe.
