I'm worried that there is water in between the patch and my skin. While I was showering I saw that there was a fold in it, so that the middle was a little lifted and there was an entrance on the side. I flattened it afterwards, and now it's nice and flat like before, but I'm afraid water got inside. Will this stop the intake of hormones?

Also, the corners of the patch I wore last week were a little bit lifted on the edges. The patch was really well stuck; but just the corners were a little lifted. Is it a problem?

Nope. The patch is made to be able to get wet. Unless it comes off, there's nothing to worry about.
