Hey Scarleteen, I have a question concerning the Ortho Evra birth control patch. Let me give you the background info: While I was sleeping, my second patch bunched up and got stuck to itself causing me to take it off and apply another patch (my third one) because the second one wouldn't stick anymore. I tried to go to my pharmacist to get a single replacement patch but I was told that I needed a prescription just for that one patch. I thought that since I already had a prescription for the patch overall, that I could get it with no problem. Now I have to go a whole extra week without a patch bc I couldn't get a single replacement. I don't know what to do because I won't have the money to refill my prescription until next week. My questions are will this affect my period causing me to spot or to miss my period all together? Because of this, does this mean that I will have to start from the beginning all over again because of a missing week's worth of my patch? When I start back on my patch in a couple of weeks, will it be as though this is my first time ever on my patch? I hope this is not confusing to anyone and I appreciate any help you can give. Thanks in advance!!
