HELLO, I have a little bit of a complicate story for you. I have been on Nordette (pill) in the past and stopped it in Aug. My periods went crazy so the Dr. decided to put me on Ortho-Evra (patch) for 3 months. First month went fine with just extreamly sore br___ts the week before my period. NOW I am scheduled to get my period next week and I feel ROTTEN. Bloated (gained 2-3 lbs.), Sore and growing br___ts, Very nausiated, and an annoying upset stomach (if I let myself, I could throw up). Does anyone know if this is normal with the patch or could it be more. I have no experience with it? HELP should I take a test or do you think it is just side effects of the patch? PLEASE HELP ME WITH SOME ADVISE!!

Here's an update. Since I posted this an hour ago I have thrown up twice and I know it's not the flu since I had that 2 weeks ago. ANY ADVISE?

Hi Snowflake. I became pregnant while on the pill. My daughter is now 19 months old. I think you should make an appointment with your doctor and discontinue with your pill. How long have you been on the patch?

This is just my 2nd month. Dr. wants me back on Birthcontrol for 3 months to regulate me. I don't really know anything about the patch so I don't know if this is normal.

hi snowflake..i actually i was the patch for about 8 months until i decided not to take it anymore....i hated it i felt like i was pregnant every month! i would cry all the time have sore b___bs and feel sick to my stomach all the time...i dont know how many HPTs i took....the only good thing about the patch was not having to remember to take a pill every day...but you should still talk to your dr. if you think you maybe pregnant and also if you are not you may decide to try a different bc becuase of how this one is making you feel. bye and good luck!

Thanks for the info Krissy. I am supposed to get af next week and then I have 1 more month and I will be off of it and hopefully my cycle will straighten out.

I have to same problem every month!! I am also on the patch and I go through the same feelings every month. I always feel like I am pg and it seems like every month I get a new symptom (i had the nausea so bad, now its the sore b___sts and discharge) I would say that there is always a chance, but I think we need to get off of this thing and switch to something else!! ; )
