When you are using the patch and have your "Week off" period week. You take it off as you normally would and then wait. It can be a few months for your peiod to return but you can get pregnant even before you get your next period. So use protection even if you want to get pregnant (easier for figuring out due date) You may notice "symptoms" of being pregnant as your body gets used to being off the patch. If you get worried test.

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.

If you are on the birth control patch and then stop, you'll ovulate two to four weeks afterwards. The timing of ovulation is unpredictable.
