    i've been on the patch for 5 weeks and so far my symptoms have been : tender breasts, mood swings, and vomiting, and decrease in appetite. most of these things went away after just a few days so they weren't too annoying. i havent had any sex since being on it so i dont know how effective it really is, but my symptoms say that it must be working.
