Ortho Evra (The Patch)

The patch is a sticky square that you place on your back, stomach or breast and change weekly. It has the same medicines, or hormones, as the pill and the ring but they are absorbed through the sin instead of through the stomach. Many women enjoy the convenience of not taking a pill every day.

The patch is not right for everyone, so if you are interested please make an appointment to discuss whether the patch is right for you!

The patch does not protect against sexually transmitted infections; therefore condoms are still a great way to add double protection!
