  • I have not personally tried the patch, but I wanted to tell you that they both work in pretty much the same ways. So I do not think that you would be any more likely to lose weight, but that's just my opinion. I don't know for sure.

      • I am on the pill now,after trying both depo and the patch.Both things I thought would be easier,but I had complications and problems with both.I was only on the patch for a week when I started to get heavy pains in my heart.So I went to the hospital and they were caused by the patch,so I immediatly got off of it and have never had the problem since.

        However everyone is different,so you may do well on the patch.However me and a few others I know couldn't use the patch,due to problems!

        • not a good choice for me

          I had alot of trouble trying to remember to take my pills. I was on the patch for about a year and a half. The adhesive left marks wherever I put it and I found it painful to remove (like removing hospital tape from your skin). And if I sweat it would sometimes come loose.But I kept using it. I had times when I felt like I was going to faint but I was working at night and I have 3 kids so I thought I just needed to rest.I was getting headaches. When I went for an annual physical, my dr told me that my blood pressure was 155/90 (it's usually 110/70). She took me off it immediatly. I am not allowed to have any bc with hormones. A few weeks after that, I read reports that many women are getting blood clots and there are law suits against the company. Now I'm looking for something else. And as far as weight loss, I didn't lose any weight while I was on it. I was told by my gyn that it can make you gain weight.

            • patch

              in my opinion i was on the patch also. Everytime it was time to start a new patch i would get so sick to my stomach.

              • I tried the patch a couple years ago.Guess what happened.I got pregnant on the patch.I am glad now,though.Also,I met a woman at my doctors office that also got pregnant while using the patch.Another thing about it-after you have worn it a few days it starts peeling a little and gets lent on it and starts looking dirty.But,you may like it.Hope this helps.
