Quoting Brie Fleurs:" I'm thinking about getting Ortho Evra (the patch) I have had the depo shot previously but I'm concerened ... [snip!] ... bone loss and loss of fertility so I'm thinking about getting the patch. Any ladies on this? What are your experiences with it?"
Quoting amanda121008:" i used it for a few years it worked great cleared my face up no weight gain as perfect"
Quoting Brie Fleurs:" Is it bascially the same side effects as the pill I like being on the pill I just hate taking it every day."
Quoting forgive-n let*love:" I was on the patch for about 2- 2 1/2years. I liked it alot. The last 3-4 months, the patch didnt stick ... [snip!] ... i cant. I switched to the pill, 5 months later, missed a few & ended up pregnant. Never heard of it effecting fertility...."I guess I never read anywhere where there was a weight limit? What is the weight limit.
Quoting amanda121008:" same side effect just easier because you stick it on and go and you dont have to worry every day but ... [snip!] ... that mark around it sounds wierd but nail polish remover just a little will take it right off otherwise its hard to get off lol"
Quoting forgive-n let*love:" The last i read, if you smoke- if your over 35 and if your over 195lbs you shouldn't use it. Let me see if i can find II'm still losing the pregnancy weight so I'm only 200 do you think five pounds will make a difference.
Quoting forgive-n let*love:" its actually 198. Weight ≥198 lbs: ORTHO EVRAŽ may be less effective if you weigh 198 lbs or ... [snip!] ... your doc- see what they say.... Im 206, and wouldnt use it unless i was more then a few lbs under 198.... just to be cautious."It's not like I'm even in a relationship or having sex on daily basis so maybe BC is unnecessary I'm not sure all I know is I can't afford another baby right now.
Quoting Brie Fleurs:" I'm not breastfeeding so really any option is available to me. 'm just worried about how long it would take me to have another baby once I decide that I'm ready for one."
