I have started using Ortho Evra 5 weeks ago. When I started, I was three weeks into my cycle. So, I got my period after my first patch. Then, I started a new cycle. On the patch change day of week 3, I took my old patch off, but forgot to put a new one on for 12 hours, during which I had unprotected sex and my boyfriend ejaculated inside. Now, while I'm on week 3, I have spotting, browish discharge first now it's pink. This has been going on for 3 days now, and the spotting is lessened. Since this is one week before my period and I had unprotected sex during time of ovulation, I am worried that it could be implantation bleeding... Please help!! Am I gonna get pregnant? I'm 19 year old and sometimes I have spotting before too, but this time is heavier than before!
I am spotting while on ortho evra one week before period. Am I pregnant?

They are supposed to be used 3 weeks in a row. Its no wonder you are spotting. You need to put one on, and then use them for 3 weeks. No forgetting to put one back on, or trying to avoid a period, because you have got to get into that pattern and get your cycle right. I don't understand how you ladies forget to put a patcn back on. You take one off and at the same time put a new one on. Why is that hard? And if you're going to skip period in the future you put a patch on after the third week, but you start counting for the next cycle so that that is week one, not week four. The spotting is probably because you haven't used it quite right and you're just starting it.
