I was on depo in August but I switched to the patch instead of getting my second shot after 3 months . Around April 23 I had sex with my boyfriend ( no condom but he uses the pullout method ) my period came on the 24th . I was two weeks late putting on my new patch & now my period is 10 days late . What could it be ? We had sex a few times in May
I think there is a patch problem. You went 2 weeks without birth control if you were 2 weeks late with a patch. That means you had 21 days you weren't protected (the 2 weeks late and the first week back on the patch). Also are you doing the 3 patches then one week off, or are you counting the patch you did put on as other then number one patch in the cycle. If you're that late putting a new patch on you start the cycle all over and that patch becomes one of a new cycle.
