IM CONFUSED

Cassandra - October 5

I have been on the Ortho Evra birth control patch for about 14 months. My boyfriend and I had s_x probably about five times through the month of september. Even though im on the patch he always pulls out also. Even if he does pre-c_m.. the patch should cover it. I was supposed to start my period on October 2nd (sunday) and I haven't started yet!! What do you think the chances are?? Ortho Evra.. pulling out? I didn't think there was too big of a chane at all.. but if not.. whats going on with me?? Thanks soo much!! :)

i would take a test just to be on the safe side. no contraception is 100% safe and repeated s_x throughout the month definately means you could have hit a fertile month. take a test if you dont come on and its negative take another. (i waited 12 days before i took mine because i thought, sods law, buy a test and the next day i would come on) althought that test told me otherwise. look after yourself :)

I could have hit a fertile month? Whats that mean?? I thought with Ortho Evra you never ovulated.. does that mean it could have messed up? Haha, sorry.. im kinda confused! Thanks!

I know when I was on Nuvaring(same kinda idea as the patch except it stays in for three weeks) I did have some periods which did show up late, not too late but probably about five days after the hormone was no longer being released into my system. It still would probably be a good idea to go take a test. Do it first thing in the morning your urine is supposed to be more concentrated meaning finding the HCG in the sample should be easier for the test.
