I'm on Mirena now but my oldest stepdaughter has been on the patch and has recently been getting a rash from it.  We have an appt next week to talk to her gyn about switching.

The doctor told me when I asked the same question is because if you are so to say too big,,,the patch may not be as affective and may not work well...idk...Hell i'm a size 8/9 im not that small but it worked for me..
