I stopped the patch a week early by mistake after only using them for 2 weeks. I had unprotected sex that same day (within 19 hours) and I'm worried I may be pregnant. Would I still have been protected on that day? I realised my mistake and put on a new patch so had approx 70 hours without one. Can anyone advise?
Ortho Evra - stopped patch a week early?

Just wanted to add that I went to the doc who gave me emergency contraception. It was within 72 hours of unprotected sex but only just but she advised me to take off the patch and start again with a new one when my period starts (I hope).
