I started using the patch around 2 months ago. I used 3 patches and had a day off but had consistent light and clotted bleeding. Since then I was advised by the doc to use the patches for 7 weeks none stop. I have just ha my week off and needed to put on a new patch on tue morning but I cannot get my prescription till wednesday afternoon. Will I be protected???
Don't take any chances. Use a condom. I'd use a condom for the first week of the patch too, just to be sure. Your dr should have rewritten the prescription to cover his new orders, then you wouldn't be coming up short.
