did you figure it out?
I am going through the same thing right now and would like to know if it was the patch or if you were pregnant?

i just started ortho Evra this month. My doctor told me to wait to have unprotected sex until i have been on the patch for a week.I started Sunday the 25th of October, and had unprotected sex on Sunday the 1st of November. Friday the 6th I had very light pink bleeding that I only noticed once while using the bathroom. I have very sore breasts, I am gassy, crapmps, very tired, and dizzy. I took a test knowing that it would be too early on the 7th. Could I be pregnant or is Ortho Evra causing me to have all the symptoms with no baby?

I have been on the patch for about a month now and I have had craps, breast soreness, fatigue, depressed, and my appetite has changed. I get queasy at night and have been like that for about a week and a half. Right now I am suppose to be on my period and the only way I know I am bleeding is if I wear a tampon other wise I am not really bleeding on pads when I wear them. I was using the patch before for over 4year and I just restarted using it again after 1 year. and before I would go 2 day with out bleeding and then bleed like a stuck pig til I put my patch back on. I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative I wanted to know is this normal or should I be worried? I have 48hr til I have to put another patch on and I really have had no period. Whats going on? I called the doctors and they told me that the pregnancy tests would tell and that the patch would not enter fear with the test, where they wrong? What should I do? Should I put my next patch on in 48hrs or not? Help please.

Ortho Evera
The patch can cause the same symptoms of pregnancy. But I actually just found out I concieved while on the Ortho Evera Patch. I am 5 weeks along. No birth control is 100% lots of things can prevent it from working properly one big thing that stops the effectiveness is some antibiotics. So if a doctor gives you antibiotics use a back up method or see if there is something that i will not mess with your birth control. I concieved my daughter in '08 while on the Depo Shot. Seems like my body over rides any method Smile
Good Luck!

HI there, 2 weeks ago I started my patch on thursday. My GP said put it on for 3 weeks, change it every week and after third week, leave it for a week. This week, thursday 22nd only the 3rd week and I dont have to put it on for a week. Unfortunately for some reason, I taken it out yesterday, 19 of march and due date should be 22nd. The question, will I still be pregnant? I won't be knowing the symptoms now because its just a day gone from yesterday. Any advice and will the chances of being pregnant will be high?
PS : Had sex few days ago

Im using evra for 21 months now. I am wearing 2nd patch and about week after I had sex last time, its 4 weeks right now, I feel really weird. I have thoughts that I am pregnant, I never ate sweets only spicy food but now I could eat chocolate all day. For brakfast, lunch and dinner. I am sucking up my tummy all day, because if I relax it it looks like Im having a small ball in my belly, and it doesnt look fat, skin there is very flexed. My hips and breasts are bigger and I am really horny all the time. I am sure that something isnt right but should I worry about being pregnant or it may be something different? Please help me, and dont say "test" because Im trying to figure it out without pregnancy test, I dont want to worry my boyfriend until Im sure that tere is something to worry about, not couple pounds more and my sick head.

I had my last regular off the patch period December 2nd. I put my patch back on and for got to change it the meet Friday. Saturday I went on vacation out of state and I forgot my patches at home. I was without a patch until the next Thursday and had another full period ( on Christmas) I got my patches Thursday and put one on and had unprotected sex later that week. I changed patches on time Jan 4th and had unprotected sex that week. today I will change patches again. this past week I choose to keep a patch on cause I couldn't have three periods in 1 month! So I was going back to normal this month. well if I use the ovulation calender and use my last normal period of December 2 then I didn't have sex during ovulation but if I those in my Xmas period off the patch I had 100% unprotected sex on my ovulation day. is there any chance I should be worried about being pregnant?

Patch Trouble
Sounds like irregular bleeding, I would put the next (second) patch on and do a test next week, your patch will not effect the result of the test. Ps, Good luck
