Hi I have been on the BC patch for about three months now and I have always been a "hot potato", but now since I have been on the patch I have been burning up. Even when I sit in the AC I still am burning up. My Mom gets mad at me because she doesn't understand why I feel so hot even when it's cold outside or inside the house. Can it be the BC patch doing this?

It's defineatly a possibility. Hormones can screw with your body temp control.

If it's really bothersome, maybe a switch to a different combination of hormones, or a non hormonal method of birth control would be a better option for you.
