I forgot to take off my patch for patch free week until that tuesday which is when i took it off. I had sex that day but my period came on that friday. Would my period have come on anyway because i took off my patch? If the patch had not been effective would i have gotten that period on friday?
The plain answer is ... yes, your period would have come on because you took off the patch. It's not about the patch not being effective ... the hormones in that patch would have fallen and would have brought about your period.
In any case, contraceptively, you are safe. But put back the patch on the day that normally do (I assume it would be Sunday).
