Comment:
When ortho evra switched to xulane, I was skeptical because I tend to lean more to name brand things being better and birth control is not something I want to make me any less protected. My worries were put to rest, I've found that both medicines are the same. I have no new side effects or anything. The only thing that bothers me about this method is the 'dirt' that gets around the pat ... Show Full Comment

I've been using Xulane for 4 months now. My only side effects have been some mood swings (but I am a moody person to begin with :)), irritation on the skin around the patch, and my periods have become shorter but a heavier flow. It has worked great for me so far; I have had sex multiple times without condoms, and I am not pregnant. The patch hasn't fallen off, and I take showers every othe ... Show Full Comment

I am in my third month of taking this patch. The first two months were miserable. Constant on and off nausea, never feeling full, bloating, you name it I felt it. This third month has been much better. I have had minimal sticking issues. The edge has stuck to my clothing, but has never fully came off. It has stayed on in shower and the few times I have been in the pool. So far it has been effectiv ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was on Ortho for a year and LOVED it. but i had to switch to this one because of insurance, it works just fine as long as you dont shower or go swimming or get wet in any way. this does not stick like it says it should and its driving me crazy. how is it going to work if it wont stay on?? im thinking about switching to something else so i can shower without being worried about my BC.
