Switch From Patch to Pill.

Now, for those who are using the Ortho patch, you've got to be tired of the red-irritated area on you body that the patch leaves right?

I've had the patch for almost 2 years now. But I've had the problem with it wrinkling up on certain parts of my body and then falling off.


So now, I am definitely thinking about switching to the pill.

Question:"Which pill should I switch to?"

Any recommendations?

One thing that I know from reading up, the patch is stronger than certain birth controls because they come in different dosages.
So perhaps a birth control that is the same or close to the same dosage would be good?
Be careful though, switching from a non habbit birth control to one you have to remmeber to take might be a challenge! :]
