On patch for 2 years , lightly bleeding

I was on the patch for 2 years and loved it. When I stopped using it I have been lighly bleeding for 3 months now continuously. I have never had problems going off of it before. Should I be worried? Any advice?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
If the bleeding is still continuing after you stopped using the patch, then I would recommend you to get a complete evaluation done by your gynecologist to make sure that there is no underlying hormonal or uterine causes leading to the continued bleeding.
Take care.
