the clinic gave me a 4 month supply of patches, but after the terrible experience of breakthrough bleeding on the pill im scared. I have had spotting/ bleeding with Lo estren fe 24 and Orthro tri cyclen. If you do get bleeding how long will it last.
You apply your first patch on the first day of your period or on the first Sunday after your period begins(follow your doctor's instructions).
Like any other hormonal contraceptive you may have breakthrough bleeding, especially during the first 3 months, as your body adjusts to the hormones. It is difficult to predict if this will happen to you and how long it will last. Talk with your doctor if the bleeding continues or is very heavy.
