... bleeding whilst on the patch (usually day 17) right the way through to when I remove my patch (day 22) and until I put on a new patch (day 1 new cycle). Why is this happening?
Breakthrough bleeding or spotting, which is bleeding that can occur between periods ranging from slight staining to a heavier flow, are side effects that may occur when you use hormonal contraceptives. Irregular bleeding may occur during the first few months of patch use but may also occur after you have been using the Patch for some time. Such bleeding is temporary and usually does not indicate any serious problems. It is important to continue to use your patches on schedule. If the bleeding occurs for more than a few cycles or lasts for more than a few days, talk to your healthcare professional
