Guess I'm in the minority here. I had a good run with the patch. I was on it for about 3 years and then had a few months with break-thru bleeding (sorry if too much info) so I switched to the Nuva-ring, which I love! I was on the pill years ago, and had really bad side effects. So, the patch was a great alternative for me. I wore it on my "bikini" area and just switched sides every week. I have swam with it on, worked out, etc. and never once had a problem with it coming off or being loose.
If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me.
