I've been on the Ortho Evra brith control patch for about a year and 4 months now. A friend told me she heard that it's not good to stay on it for along time. However, www.orthoevra.com says nothing about that. Is anyone else on the patch or know how long it's safe to stay on it? Thanks

You can be on it for several years without any adverse side effects. One year and four months is a relatively short period of time to have been on it so far. I would continue with it, if it is working well for you, and ask your Dr. at your next yearly visit. You also get my salute for using birth control and being responsible!

I am on the patch and I actually may be pregnant...but that's beside the point. I have been on it for 5 months, (since my last son was 1 month) and my doctor didn't mention long term use at all.

Thanks for your answers. The patch has worked well for me, so ill stay on it until I can ask my doctor next visit.
