... on the patch. Now I'm on the second month can I do the three week patch cycle this time or should I continue to take them the first two weeks get my period and put on another on the fourth?
NO. What prompted you to take it off In 2 weeks? You weren't protected until you had a patch back on for a week. There is a reason you are told 3 weeks. It works with your cycle. Taking it off early left you open to getting pregnant. The cycle is 3 weeks on one week off. You can't alter that and remain protected.
