... and had a period. 7 days later I put on a patch again and realised I should be having my patch free week. So basically i had two weeks of patch, one week break, and on my first patch week again. Should I continue as normal like and follow the new patch as my first week? Or take a break and start the cycle again?
Lord how did you do that? You do know you weren't protected that week you took it off don't you. I would just start from scratch, call this patch one and go from there, 3 patches on one off. Mark it on your calendar or something when you change them. You can't consider yourself protected until you've had a patch on for a week either.
