... and had to wait about 2 weeks to get my replacement. My husband and I continued to have unprotected sex and i put on my 1st patch of the new cycle last week. for the last 2 weeks I have been feeling extremely tired, hormonal, and nauseous. Could I be pregnant? Should I keep using my patch until I can use a test? What should I do if its still too early to take a home pregnancy test?
Yes you should keep using the patch. You should not have had unprotected sex when the patch fell off. Yes there is more of a chance you're pregnant. Be sure you cleanse the skin well before you put patches on. You should try to keep a new refill on hand so this won't happen and you have to wait again. You should be treating this like it was the first time you used the patch and use a condom for at least the duration of the first patch.
