Yes you can become pregnant if you have forgotten to change the patch on your patch change day. If you forgot 1-2 days after your patch change day and you put the patch on immediately when you remember, you are okay. But any longer than 2 (3 or more) days you must use a back-up contraceptive to protect from becoming pregnant and the day you put on the forgotten patch is your new patch change day. If you have had unprotected sex in the during the end of the 2nd day and so on, you have a real good chance of being pregnant and should go see your doctor to get tested.

I would think that you could get pregnant. I want to get pregnant but the bf doesn't right now! I figure if I don't change my patch I could get pregnant.

What if you start the birth control patch a day late?

You should be. I've found the patch is much more forgiving than the pill is.Nothing other than you have a new patch change date.If she applied the patch when she first got her period then no other contraceptive is needed. If she was a Sunday start you must wait atleast 7 days before unprotected intercourse. This is what i was told by an orth evra spokesperson on the phone.

Hello, It is possible you could become pregnant while not wearing the patch for a few days because the patch will not be protecting you against pregnancy for the few days you wasn't wearing it. If you suspect you could be pregnant, then see your doctor 7 days after intercourse for a quantitative beta hcg blood test to determine if you're pregnant or not. Take care.
