thanks delicious. The thing is, I've had spotting the last 4 out of 4 weeks and was due to get my period the day after this instance - I still have bleeding, but can't tell the difference between the spotting and period. I actually took a morning after pill just in case, but then found out you have to skip the placebo pills if you're due to take them within 7 days, which I didn't do.
Anyway, do you think the fact that the patch was at the back means nothing could have happened?

For future reference, hit "reply" rather than creating a new topic

EC can cause more spotting and mess up your period even further, if you were due to get it, so that's out to base your risk on.

With everything you've described I really don't think you have anything to worry about, though, so I'd forget about it. You can think about it again if next month you don't get your withdrawl bleed (though I'm not sure if the EC you took now would affect your next pill pack or not, which just means there could be some more irregularity then) you can test. Still, I wouldn't worry.
