  • I was on it and I got a horrible rash from it. Yes they can be placed on top of a tattoo, if it is not brand new (obviously)

  • I was on it for over a year. I never had any problems. I always placed mine almost on my butt cheek. Low enough so my underwear band didn't touch it. It always stayed in place well and never caused any problems. I wouldn't think a stomach ache would be from the patch. Probably not related.

  • i used it and gained weight with it. i always put it on my lower abdomen. the stomachache could have been from it. some people don't respond well to hormones.
