I had some issues with replacing my IUD, so I opted to give "the patch" a try. It's been nice as far as only having to replace weekly, however, as a long distance runner there have been a few close calls in losing the 'stick' several days early.

Overall, I loved that I only had to change the patch once a week. However, it left a sticky mess on my body in between changes and gave me horrible nausea and vomiting during the first day of the first patch. The nausea improved, and so did my acne. The only down side is that the patch killed my libido.
