  • Wow this is very nce Sis. I am using hormonal pills now and Yes I am very sensitive sometimes. I want to switch on this. Should I just ask my OB to prescribe me on this?

  • I just stopped mine. It made me gained weight, started getting acne. Made me extremely emotional. I was crying for no reason! Nah. I’m good.

  • I know people who smoke and take birth control and I told them it can really hurt them. One of my frends got on birth control and blew up so fast.

  • Hi sissy love you ���� just dropped but it’s for you all so just a small comment and I am sure you wanna help the womenfolk do help women and I am sur you will reap rich harvest love my sweet Kristy and hi to Greg ������������������������

  • Im 19 years old and I haven’t been on birth control for about 2 years now because I had a really bad experience with the birth control pills but I’m about to start the patch this Friday and the video & reading some of the comments are really helpful and since I’m about to go back to birth control I’m sure my period will be a bit weird and not used to it but my question is, if let’s say I’m on the 3rd week and I start my period do I keep the patch on still or do I take off right away? Or if on the 4th week I don’t get my period and I start on the 1st week on the new set of patches what do I do? Do I just keep going with my rotation or do I change it up?

  • Ang naka chada sis Kay wa Jud ka nanambok bisan gutom ka permi. Hi tech na Jud panahon Ron Kay naa nay patches aside sa oral. Great review sis.

  • I’m on xulane patch and it stopped my periods but now a few months later I’ve been spotting for two weeks! It’s so frustrating! It won’t stop. And I’m cramping. I’ve been very consistent. I’ve been rotating it from fatty hip area to fatty hip area so going from one side to the other. Should I rotate to more areas? Maybe this is why I’m spotting? Idk.

  • When I was in my early 20s, I used a birth control patch and my body reacted horribly to it. Not sure which patch it was, but I was so grateful to come off of it. Thank you for sharing your experience with us…it might help others make a more informed decision about their health and well-being!

  • Okay so. This has been my first month on the xulane and I know that during the 4th week is when you’re supposed to get your period but mine came on the end of the third week is that okay? I’m kinda nervous. I wanted to get on a good birth control because I have recently graduated high school and I am attending college this fall and babies are a no go for me right now ��.

  • What is the accuracy of the patch if I change it at a few hours after the day I’m originally supposed to change it? Also can I get my period during one of my weeks were I wear the patch?and since I started the patch late in the month my week off starts when there is only 3 days left in the month can this cause my period to come early next month?

  • Oh and the cramps are so severe I keep my heating pad close to me and one more thing. My breast literally hurt with a sharp pain. And yes I’ve had a mammogram. It’s this patch!!!!

  • Birth control pills may work well for others.
    Just take note of the side effects and if it bothers you.. report it to your MD.
    Very good review on the product.
    Thanks for sharing

  • hi! why does it say that typically people over a certain weight cant use the patch? im over that weight and my pharmacist said she never heard of that and it was fine

  • kaya pla blooming k sis yan ang gmit mo nice review sis.. ang kulir dhil patches lng siya di ni take ako kse gmit ko pills diane pills pro eto nkka amaze patches lng tlga siya..sana mron dito niyan sa pinas..hihi

  • I tried the patch and it was amazing until it started giving me a rash wherever I put it. It looked red and raw and hurt so bad I had to stop using it

  • Hi, I am on the 3rd patch my period came really early accompanied by painful period cramps for the last 5days when should I see my gp or is it just a side effect that will wear off?

  • Correction, only works immediately for contraception if used on day 1 of cycle. Started on any other day yiu have use barrier methods for seven days!

  • While on the patch did any of you guys notice hair thinning my hair is thinning I’m not sure if it’s Bc of the patch Bc I been on it for a while

  • hello i have a question, i started an Evra patch today, except i put in on my lower abdomen and naturally, when i sit down or exercise the skin folds. the patch is still in tact but it moves with my skin and i could see a small gray lining showing that the skin was stretched making the patch move a bit higher (but its still well stuck on my skin!) is this okay or should i replace it on a place that moves less?

  • Hii, So i had a heart surgery 11 months ago and I’m currently on blood thinners (lisinopril). I’m 17 years old, would the estrogen and such affect my blood or something?

  • Really hoping you see this! I’m 23 and a type 2 diabetic and became a diabetic after starting the pill after having my daughter. I stopped taking the pill about 3 months later after my endocrinologist told me to stop taking it and I never started anything else. She’s now 4 and I think I want to get back on a birth control but worried what birth control diabetics can take. I’m thinking about the patch and wondering if I’ll be okay? Thanks!
    Side note: the pill also made me gain about 40 pounds so being a diabetic I’m also worried about anymore weight gain.

  • Just a heads up to all my ladies, if you stop taking hormonal birth control get ready for a lot of acne breakouts. No one told me thing when I decided to take it or stop, but after looking it up it happens to other women too:( darn hormones

  • i have been on this patch for a few months i have noticed that it would not stick well so what i did was i went to my local pharmacy and got tagaderm patches to help keep it stick, this patch causes heavy bleeding i am one to never bleed heavy…

  • Thanks for this! A lot of people act like birth control is some magic solution that can’t be flawed. But people have different bodies which can react differently to them

  • I used the patch before but it does get awkward to see a big patch on your skin. I tried it years ago so it might be better now but girl I had to get rid of it. I couldn’t keep up with the dates even with reminders. Great informative video love ❤

  • I’m overweight over 250 pounds and my doctor did not tell me the patch is not recommended for women over 200 pounds. I did not want to go on the pill. I had an IUD 4 times and my body started rejecting my last one. So I chose the patch. Have you heard of anyone getting pregnant who may be 250 or more in weight on the patch?

  • Wait, so it doesn’t shift even with showers? I definitely don’t believe in medicinal birth control, I hear too many horror stories and I don’t like my hormones to be out of wack, lol. Thanks for the info!

  • hi!! so i was reading some stuff on the patch and it may increase your risk of blood clotting, strokes, heart attacks, etc. and i don’t have any bad medical records of any of those things so should i be worried about those side effects??

  • My Fiance’ has suffered from depression in the past but she started taking Xulane back in July and her depression has come back 100 fold.. We had no idea why it came back or anything but its put a huge strain on our relationship to the point were shes unsure if she even wants to get married anymore. The loss of libido is also very apparent its like she doesnt want to be intimate ever and its weird because she has always been the opposite. Im so glad that others have shared their experience and honestly this stuff is the devil.. she is stopping this week so keep those fingers crossed for us!

  • Hi I was wondering if I can put the patch on my thigh even I shave my whole legs. Is it okay if I can put the patch on my thigh even though I shave?

  • I just started and I’m on my second week of the patch and my acne was a little bad then it cleared up but all of the sudden it just got terrible I’m breaking out on my face more shoulders neck and I don’t know if it’s because of the patch or my hormones are just adjusting to it. So I was wondering if anybody had any problems like mine and if it’s normal:) I’m also 15 y/o and this is my first time on birth control. I’ve also been itchy we’re my patch is and just in general. I was wondering if you had any tips for me.

  • I just started birth control for the first time ever. I’ve been on the patch for about a month and a half now, I change it every week and The times it has came off I put a new one on right away and continued to change it on the day I regularly do. Lately I had bleeding that looked like spotting it started light and got heavier……it’s not my patch free week yet. I feel so anxious about it being implantation bleeding or something?? I just want to know if I should be worried??

  • My patch sometimes get wrinkle when I put it on my but area due to my underwear I guess rubbing against the patch.. I would like to know if the patch is still affective even if it’s slightly wrinkled in the middle

  • Para lang din sa oral may 1 week na pahinga gwapz. Hope meron din yan dito pinas. Ayoko ng oral, ngkakasakit ako dun at minsan nakakalimutan ko uminom. Hehe. Thanks for sharing this.

  • If the hormones in birth control cause you to have issues. This may be a good option for you: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgY7bVf3Uz1CWSqZ6wCamr8v-R_CYVS9a

  • I had to stop using this form of birth control because my body didn’t agree with it ���� I can only use a limited amount of options because my body rejected other forms of birth control. Now I only have 3 options left ��

  • Hi, is it okay if there are bubbles that form under the patch after a shower or a workout? is it still effective? also, if the borders doesn’t stick after a few days, am i still protected? thank you:)

  • I’m on my second month of using the birth control patch. And I’m wondering will my period start on the same day? Or will my cycle still be regulating when I’m going to start my period. For example, I started my period last month on Wednesday so am I likely to start on the Wednesday on every month?

  • Hi! This video is super informative and thankful for it! I was wondering how it holds up after exercising / running a long time due to excessive sweat, will the patch be able to fall off?

  • I just got my nexplanon removed due to weight gain and anxiety…. Did it make you gain weight or mood swings???? My doctor just prescribed me these patches kinda worried about more weight gain but your video relaxed me about my questions thank you!!!! ☺️

  • You literally answered my question right at The end when you said the patch did not fall off I was going to say what about when you get in the shower lol I also have to set reminders for everything in my life that’s how I stay organized

  • I am currently starting the patch but the corners are peeling off a bit no matter what I do and no matter where I out it. Is this normal??? Will this effect the distribute of medicine???

  • Am I still protected if my patch starts to lift up after working out but I sat it aside and let it dry and put it back on if still sticky? This is my first ever birth control so I’m kind of scared:/

  • Love this!!! Spreading positive and informative messages across YouTube�� I was curious if it ever falls off, but you answered that for me lol

  • I just started xulane and I’m soo ravenous hungry! I’ve only started a week ago and almost immediately I was starving. I’m never like that.

  • So if my period is 18 days away can I start the patch today? my period is supposed to come on July 18th so do I just wear a patch through that time I’m supposed to come on and go patch free the week later? and since im not on my period I have to wait until the first patch/7 days is up to be protected from pregnancy, correct? sorry for the numerous questions

  • Hi, Quinn CJ, I have several of these patches from Xulane. I decided not to use them since I got off birth control. Do you think I should put them in my future Giveaway ��? I’m sure there’s some beauty lover out there who would appreciate them.

  • It a second month of me using this patch. And side effects just got worse. I feel chest pain, anxiety, feel often as if I’m going to through up, very sensitive to smells, and very tired all the time, spend all day in bad

  • But after that incident it stop but I have been getting blood clots when I get my period once my patchs are done and then yea but no gain weight boobs are slightly growing my nails been getting long but not that strong lol um I be getting cramps when I’m on them but it’s not as bad as my period cramps and the Best part about it is when I stop taking the patchs for a whole 3 weeks straight I didn’t get my period till the 4th week i was shock cause I wasn’t even on it I was trying the experience out last month but now I take em again

  • I’ve been on the patch for a year. I loved it the first 9 months! But after being diagnosed with endometriosis, my doctor wanted me to keep it on for all four weeks. Now I’ve been spotting for 3 months now. Every day, nonstop. Most times light, sometimes heavy. I’m switching to pills now ):

  • My health doesn’t allow for hormonal birth control but women need to be informed of all our options. Thank you for educating me. I’ve never heard of this particular patch.

  • I’m on the pill at the minute but I’m considering changing to the patch as I keep forgetting to take them, luckily it’s never over the leeway time ��

  • This is the first review of the patch where I felt like the Information was very clearly explained. ♥️ You’re gorgeous I wish you the best!
