I used the patch for three months. The first two months were fine but the last month, about two weeks in, I got the most horrible rash all over my body. Every part of me was soooo itchy it was terrible. The rash lasted for a week and a half too. I take normal birth control now (and did previous to using the patch) and I'm pretty glad that happened considering the worse things that could happen. This patch is bad news and I hope more people hear about it before it is too late for them.
