Could i get pregnant after having the patch off for eight days?
Patient : I am on the birth control patch, ortho evra, but when it was time to start my new cycle, im a sunday starter, the pharmacy had closed so i couldnt get them until monday afternoon. So i put on my new patch (week 1 day 1) one day late after my week off (so i was 8 days without the patch). Could i have ovulated and risked getting pregnant in that time? I had unprotected sex with my husband that monday, wednesday and friday.
