Hi! I know this sounds very strange, but I wore a patch for the first time for literally 3 hours before it started to peel from a combination of sweat and aerobic dance. Clearly, I'm not going to feel safe on it. So..I've decided I'm going to go on the pill after all (I already have a prescription, since it was my original choice). Is it ok to start it tomorrow, considering I wore that patch for 3 hours? Or should I wait till my next period? If I started tomorrow, I'd be starting on the second day of my period.
