I've been on ortho evra for almost 2 years now and I'm currently on my 3rd patch week and don't start my patch-free week until Monday. Around Wednesday, I noticed that I started bleeding like I was on my period and it was reddish/a deep brown and it's been going on for about 3 days now (including today) associated with minor cramping. I was wondering is this breakthrough bleeding or should I be worried because this isn't the time I should be bleeding and that should be next week.
Its breakthru. As long as you haven't been on antibiotics or not used your patch right you shouldn't be worrying.
