Hey all,
im curious to know if anyone has gotten pregnant while on ortho evra. I've been on for 6 months, and have just started to develop really sore nipples and lowe abdominal cramps.... Just slightly curious if its a possibility (ok, I know its possible) but anyways.

Thanks,
day

Here's a reply for you... There's always a possibility to get pregnant with any kind of birth control, because nothing is 100% effective. The possibilities are smaller if you're using your stuff 100% correctly 100% of the time, but it's still there. How's that? Laughing

Lol thats great. Something I already knew, but hey, at least someone responded... Smile I was just curious about the patch in particular. I know a lot of women on here have had some issues with iud's and such, and wanted to see if anyone had 'patch' experiences. Since the patch is kinda tricky sometimes, with questions like 'how much of the little edges can be loose and it still be affective?' etc... The pill is just one pop, and have to be concerned about vomiting and diaharrea.... But with the patch you have to be careful that its still stuck, not pulling up anywhere etc...And difficult to estimate how long its been loose when you finally find it. I assume women have had problems like that...Just trying to find some. =)

Ortho Evra
I used to be on the patch and I didint like. Because even if a little corner comes off its less effective and I would always be scared until my next period. I also heard that it is the number one birth control that causes blood clots.

Well I still have the sore breasts, i've been sick for the last 3 days (sore throat, stuffy nose)...So I cant really judge the crampiness anymore (cuz I feel achey everywhere) I dont have my patch off week until friday 26th, so I guess we'll see if I get my period. I will keep you updated. My body tries and messes with my mind all the time though. Grrrrrr

Well took my patch off on the 26th....Its the evening of the 28th and nothing yet. Which is ok for me right now...Im usually about a 3 day later kind of girl...So we're just waiting it out. Things will definitely turn upside down if im pregnant,,,but not much I can do about it now. I'll update ya later in the week on what happens.

Ortho Evera Patch
Hi
I am a person that takes birth control faithfully and i thought i would try the ortho evera patch and i was doing good for about 9 months while i was with my boyfriend and it did fine for those nine months and right about the time we split up I got pregnant 2 months before that and didn't know but the thing is i used it correctly and everything and i also know a few other females that also did the same thing so i highly do not recommend the patch unless you are not having sex and just using it to regulate your periods.
