After looking up the reviews on this website I has TERRIFIED to try the 'generic brand' patch for birth control. My body is hyper sensitive to any kind of change and after using Ortho evra for over 10 years I wasn't looking forward to any new changes with my body. However, I had no choice but to try it because my pharmacy no longer offered me Ortho evra. After using Xulane the past 3 m ... Show Full Comment

I haven't had any weight gain, minor moodiness and it's been super easy to use. I did break out really badly my first month but got a prescription cream that has helped that. Otherwise the only negative thing is my sex drive is minimal.

Comment:
I am 36 and have been on Xulane now for about 12 months. Although the convenience is great, I have had more side effects on Xulane than OrhoEvra. I have my period and two weeks later I spot another week. This month it's like uncontrolled peeing. I'm so undecided of what to try now for birth control but need something reliable.

I recently came off of Mierna and onto the patch because I was spotting for 2 months with the IUD . I have only been on the patch for a total of 4 days. On the second day, I went home sick from work because I thought that I had food poisoning. My stomach was aching so bad and I couldn't stop visiting the restroom. I ate soup and crackers the next day. after 48 hours the pain is less intense b ... Show Full Comment
