You had a failure close to the end of your cycle, there should be no problem, especially as you were double covered by hormone contraception. At this stage you have overdosed on hormones and it will take some time for your body to get back in sync. The best bet is to keep on using the patch on the regular schedule, and s for double protection is always good. You might consider calling the clinic that prescribed the patch and ask for advice.

when you are on the pill you dont have periods anyway, they are only withdrawal bleeds. When people say they 'regulate periods' its not exactly true. When coming off the pill it can take a while for normal periods (or menstruation) to return. Plus seeing as you went straight to the patch, it will have affected when you bleed. So I think it will be very unlikely that you are pregnant, but test for your own peace of mind. Your body should settle down with using the patch soon.

oh and the morning after pill like granpa viv said, is more hormones, so that will affect you in this way too

I've been on the patch for about a year and a 4 months now and everything has worked out well. Good luck!
