Bc he still has three more yrs in the army and going through all this army stress wouldnt be good for me nor the baby if i was pregnant, Please i will really appreciate yalls help.
Did you start the patch within the first 24 hours of starting your period? If you did, then you should have been protected against pregnancy and it is most likely side effects of the patch. The patch can cause side effects that are very similar to early pregnancy symptoms. If you started the patch any other time than within the first 24 hours of the first day of your period then there is a possibility you are pregnant and you should probably take a pregnancy test. If you are not pregnant, you should get your period sometime during the 4th "patch off" week. It may take a few days to start. You may not start the very first day the patch is off.
