There is no advantage to using the Birth Control patch and birth control pill at the same time. They have the same mode of action. If you want to double up on methods, try using a barrier method like condoms along with a hormonal method.
Normally you would start the birth control patch on the day you were scheduled to start the next pack of pills.
With perfect use, the pill and patch are equally effective. Because you only have to remember to do something with the patch weekly, unlike the pill which is daily, it's harder to make mistakes.
If you start the birth control pill on schedule, no later than the day on which you would have started the next cycle of the birth control patch, you are protected during the switch. If you were late in starting the pill, you may not have protection until you've taken the pill correctly for seven days.
no, but if you have a hard time remembering the pill I suggest the patch.
It is easy to change from the pill to the patch. Just start the patch at any time and you'll have immediate protection, as long as you start it on or before the day you were supposed to start your next pack of pills.
The birth control patch is a combined hormonal contraceptive method, like the pill. With the patch, you put a new one on weekly for three weeks, and take the fourth week off.
Hormonal birth control, like the ring, shot, pill, and patch, can not harm or end a pregnancy.
You're not likely to see a change in side effects when changing from the patch to the pill. You will have to be more diligent about timing, since you're moving from once-a-week birth control to daily.
Combined hormonal birth control methods -- those that contain estrogen -- include the regular birth control pill (but not the minipill or progestin-only pill), the ring, and the patch.
Then u go get a new one (: Umm i prefer the birth control pill's they work allot better.
