Patient :I am on the evra patch and have worn 3 weeks patches.. I forgot to take off my third week patch on my usual morning and took it off when I remembered the next day, in the morning so the week 3 patch was on for an extra 24 hours before taking it off for my break week. I usually get my period on Saturday but it came on Sunday.. I have now put my patch back on (on my original day) so I only had a 6 day break. Is this normal?. I know you can be 2 days late changing your patch after week 1 or 2 so I assume there are more than 7 days’ worth of hormones in the patch?. This is why my period came a day later than usual/ because I took it off a day later than normal and there were still hormones in it?
