User Comments:

For Birth Control “Little to no side effects apart from sore boobs the first 1 month with very slight (more annoying than painful) crampingAfter the first month, it has not been a problem at all! Have had it for 5 months now.”

For Birth Control “I’ve only been on the patch for 2 days and I’m already annoyed. I’ve gone through 3 patches already because they’ve either creased or began to peel off which I don’t trust. Even worse the sticky from the patch stuck on to my skin and fluff clothes stuck onto it, leaving a black mark which is impossible to get off. Will definitely be trying out something else”

For Birth Control “I’ve been on the ortho evra patch for 4 years now and I’ve never had any problems. I was originally put on the patch to combat hormonal mood swings, severe cramps and an irregular period. Since then, my period comes 3 days after I remove the patch and lasts till I put on my next (3-4 days). I’ve never had any spotting or bleeding throughout the month and my weight has never been affected. My mood is also very stable and I get virtually no cramps/aches on my period. I would highly recommend the patch to anyone.”

For Birth Control “I have PMDD and needed my hormones to be balanced. My mood was atrocious and it had almost ruined my marriage. I’ve used Celexa 40mg which was awesome however I was unable to have an orgasm. This was very frustrating for both my husband and myself. So my psychiatrist advised me to get off of Celexa after we tried a few other things with Celexa that didn’t work. I was on Xulane for 3 months and loved it. The first few weeks I would get a little stomach ache and feeling of nausea but it only lasted for a couple of hours per day. Both were very bearable. My appetite deceased as well. The good thing is I would only eat when I was hungry no more emotional eating. “

Xulane vs Ortho Evra & PMDD (taken for 1 to 6 months) December 29, 2017

For Birth Control “I been on evra patch for a year now, no specific mood swings no spotting, normal periods as 7 days, period only starts on 3rd day after removing patch and overlap by 3 days! Breasts have grown I might say a cup size. Some of periods I had very bad back pain some I don’t even feel ( so I don’t think is anything to do with patch) I have not gained much weight and I think it’s nothing to do with patch. If I eat like pig I get fat if and if I cut down on carbs I slim down.”
