Ive been on the bc pach for a couple months now and I went one week with my patch like normal then I had to go out of town and forgotten my patches after two weeks I kam back and had unprotected sex with my boyfriend .and the next day I put a new patch on an im currently still wearing them.is ther a chance I could be pregnant?
OMG, of course you could be pregnant. You haven't had any birth control to speak of for 2 weeks. You need to treat it like a new start on the patch. Use back up birth control for a week. Then get out the directions and read them over and over until you've got it in your head. Take some responsibility for your body.
Yes, there is a chance you could be pregnant. What I dont understand is if you knew you had been without birth control for what essentially sounds like one true week (because one week was your "off" week, correct?) why you would think to chance having unprotected sex? You most certainly could have ovulated while the patch was off a second week and if the timing was right, you could very well have gotten pregnant. If you have trouble remembering to use the patch, perhaps it isnt the right method for you. I would think it would be common sense to use a condom if you knew you hadnt worn the patch for a week that you should have been wearing one. Hopefully, you got lucky but you are surely playing Russian Roulette if you dont want to be pregnant! If your next period doesnt come when expected, you need to do a pregnancy test. Go ahead and keep using the patches for now and use back up until you have worn a patch for at least a week!

Ortho Evra - I started the patch a little over a month ago. I was on the 3rd patch when it fell off?
