Im on patch and got the period dont understand y

Patient: I am on the patch and got my period why? its the third patch of the month i put it on monday night




Symptoms: Birth control

Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern. Breakthrough bleeding can be seen as one of the side effects of contraceptive patch.Usually this will subside soon without need of additional medicines.And it may take few months for regularisation of menstrual cycles while on patch.Usually this breakthrough bleeding may not affect the contraceptive efficacy of the patch.Take care.
