    I have been on the patch for two weeks and it has left me with scabs after taking it off. I think my skin is too sensitive to the adhesive it leaves on my skin.

    I have never tried anything other than Ortho Evra. I have used this for 7 years and am very satisfied overall.

    I have been on this for 6 months. I love, love it. In the beginning I had a little nauseousness. After,the first month I was back to normal. I change it on Sundays. My 4th week I leave off my period will return on that wed or thurs. on Sunday I put on a new patch. It has worked well for me. It's something you don't have to think much about.
