Yes, when I went on the B.C. patch last year I didn't get my period until three months later, and then I didn't stop bleeding for three months. The first few months you go on birth control your body needs time to absorb the hormones and take total effect.

Yes, you can put on the birth control patch during your period.

If you wear the birth control patch during your period, you may have a lighter or absent or shorter period. Be sure to start the next patch as scheduled.

The birth control patch normally makes a woman's period shorter and lighter. This change happens with all hormonal birth control.

User Avatar

If you get your period while wearing the birth control patch, continue using the patch as scheduled. If this becomes a problematic pattern for you, contact your health care provider.

Yes, early removel of the birth control patch may cause an early or late period. Since you weren't using effective birth control, take a pregnancy test if your period is late.

If you get your period while on birth control, you should continue using your birth control as scheduled. Bleeding does not change the schedule for taking your pill or changing your patch or ring.

All hormonal birth control methods, like the pill, patch, ring, shot, and the hormonal IUD, lighten the amount of flow you have. Any amount of bleeding or spotting counts as a period if you're on hormonal birth control.

It is called break through bleeding.Check with your doctor for other types of birth control.

User Avatar

If you put the birth control patch on before your period comes, you may miss that period; you may also have unscheduled bleeding or spotting. If you have been using the patch regularly, it's possible that it will lighten bleeding so much that you won't see a period. If you think you made a mistake with the patch, and missed a period, take a pregnancy test to make sure.

The Ortho evra birth control patch is a single patch placed on your hip, butt, arm or stomach once per week, for three weeks. The fourth week you don't put a patch on, this week is for your period.

The birth control patch was approved by the FDA in 1992.

If you use it correctly for at least one week, the birth control patch is effective even if you're bleeding. You still have protection during the patch-free week if you used the patch correctly in the previous weeks.

User Avatar

If you bleed when the patch is on, continue using the patch as scheduled. Contact your health care provider if this becomes an ongoing problem.

In general, all birth control pills, as well as the patch and ring and the Mirena IUD, make your period lighter.

User Avatar

All hormonal birth control makes periods lighter. In some women, the period may be so light that it is not noticed at all.

User Avatar

Yes, you can swim if you're on the birth control patch.

User Avatar

Yes, the birth control patch is a hormonal method

User Avatar

Yes since it's your patch free or period free week

User Avatar

Your period may be late if you started the birth control patch a week late. If you had sex during that time, you may be at risk for pregnancy. Take a pregnancy test to be sure.

User Avatar

When you stop the birth control patch, you will probably have withdrawal bleeding, as you typically have during your patch-free week. After that, if you had regular periods before you started the patch, you'll probably ovulate in two to four weeks, and get your first post-patch period in four to six weeks. You can get pregnant before your first period after stopping the patch. If your periods were irregular before the patch, they're likely to return to that irregular habit after you stop.

The birth control patch does not affect future fertility. People become pregnancy at the same rate after patch use as those who never used the patch or hormonal birth control.

User Avatar

Putting on the patch just before your period is due may lighten, delay, or prevent your period.

User Avatar

If you stop the birth control, you may have bleeding even if your last period was less than a month ago.
