I have been on birth control since august and everthing has been going fine i took the patch off on wednesday and my period came on saturday morning and stayed on until wednesday (tuesday night when i woke up on wed it was off) i am going to get my refill of the patch today but it said on the paper that u should not have the patch off for more then 7 days i took it off wednesday so my period could come on and its thursday so is been 8 days will this effect the birth control? will it still work even though its been more then 7 days. oh yea and today i was spotting a little and it said that if u misusu the patch u may experience some spotting or light bleeding. Im gonna go get my birth control tonite but will it still work.

I'm not sure I understand: did you take the patch off as directed, at the proper time, or earlier than you were supposed to per your patch cycle?

I took the patch off like i was suppose to but that was last wednesday and today is thursday so its been longer then 7 days. But i've been thinking maybe they meant 7 days after you have had your cycle. But i did everything correctly but i just nervous about that 7 days and the light bleeding ( at least i think it was light bleeding it only happen once) I'm just a little worried the birth control will be ineffiecent.
