I forgot to take off my patch on my normal patch change day for week 4. (which is on a sunday for me) I didn't start my period until thursday. I have to wear white pants this saturday! If I put my new patch on early, will I stop my period? When should I put it on, today? :?

No, putting the patch on early will not stop your period. For me my change date is monday.. I don't get my period until late in the day on thursday so it goes into my first week of wearing the patch normally and putting the patch on does not stop it.

I Am Concerned About Sensitive Eyes On the Patch
:roll: i'm in the second week of the patch and I noticed my eyes get strained easily if i'm on the computer and then watch tv. My eyes actually sting in one eye. I have to turn it off it is so uncomfortable. Even when I take a break my eyes still seemed strained. I don't think I can continue to work with how my eyes feel on the computer. Any similar experiences?
