i just started using the patch for the first time three weeks ago. i got my period 2 days after applying my third patch. the pharmacist told me to take it off and that my body just isn't adjusted to the patch yet. am i supposed to start a new patch change day? does my patch change day have to be on the day i took off my patch because i had my period? also, do i have to wait another month before i can have sex without a condom since my body isn't adjusted to the patch yet and i have to start a new change day?
omg, the pharmacist messed you up. You should have left the patch on and continued with your cycle. Your body is not used to the extra hormones yet, so you have breakthrough bleeding but it means nothing. When you bleed once you're on the patch has nothing to do with your patch cycle. Start your patch as a sunday start after your period. Today is sunday. Then you will have to wait a week for unprotected sex. Here is the link to the patch web site, it has alot of info on it. orthoevra.com/how-use-start-patch.html
