I have a question about my birth control I had

Patient : I have a question about my birth control. I had the Mirena IUD from November 2013 and just had it removed on Tuesday, March 17th 2015. I was prescribed the Evra patch which I applied on the following day, Wednesday March 18th. Today is exactly 7 days since I first put on my path. I applied my second one this morning and I am wondering if I'm safe? I prefer not to use a condom and I am seeing my partner tonight. Just wanted to check if my protection is still there! Thanks!
