birth control patch what was your review?

okay .. i was on the patch back in highschool all i remember is that i loved the patch and it has been my fav birthcontrol method. I dont remeber no side effects or weight gain no nothing.

I have had 2 kids since high school i was 113 lbs then i was really small and couldnot gain no weight to save my life. after baby num 1 i also took the patch i didnt pay my weight any attention then. guess it wasnt a matter. i didnt get back to my pre preggo weight but hey im 5'7 i could use a little more weight being im tall

anyhow my point is i had baby number 2 in 2009 after that i got the mirena iud and couldnt lose weight my lowest weight was 171 with teh iud when i got up to 183 during my pregnancy. so i was on that for long b4 i got a new method i asked for the patch doc i went too then cudnt give it to me. so i got some pill .. I did manage to lose weight. that ran out back in Aug so till today i havent took no birth.( 2 b cont)

  • I got pregnant on the patch, so after I had her, I went to the Mirena. I am on my second one now and have successfully had it for 6 years with no side affects. I have lost 20 lbs in the past 3 months.

  • I had my beautiful son Bailey while on the Patch! He is 6 now. I've been happily on the pill ever since.

  • I had a lot of trouble with the patch, migranes and constant nausea were the main ones I have Mirena now and dont have many complaints
