Hi, so for the past 2 months my period has doubled. Is this normal with the patch? Am I taking it wrong and how can I make it stop?

Hello, Charlie! How are you?

Yes, that can be a normal side effect of using the contraceptive patch. The FDA lists the other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and PMS-like symptoms.

It it continues past 3 to 4 months, you should consult your doctor, as you may need to try a different contraceptive.

Is there anything else I can help with?
