It might still happen. It probably would have been better if you had just not had a patch free week. This would have kept you from having a period while away. Just don't forget to put one back on before you l leave home. The other thingis I'm not sure you would be protected since this was just your 3 week. I would say use backup birth control or call your dr and ask about it.
The proper way to do this is to skip your period week and just not have a period this month by not having a patch free week. That would have kept you protected. You cannot count on being protected since you basically just didnt use your hormones for a week. You cant change your cycle like that. You need to do just like you are starting over. You need to use back up protection until you have your next patch on for a week. There is a good possibility you are not protected right now.
