Welcome to this forum.
You are partially right. It contains few hormones which might cause that. But not always. Wondering why have you started or continues the patch without having a cycle.Meet your doctor for an opinion regarding this.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an on1stline medical forum.
