Hi Doc

I have been on the Evra patch for 3 weeks now, but on my 3rd week, I have bleeding. Its not like period bleeding where there''s a flow but when I wipe sometimes there''s very light blood on the toilet paper. Its been like this for 2 or 3 days now. Is this normal? Or should I worry? Is this contraceptive not working for me? I''m freaking out!

It is possible that the contraceptive is not working for you and I suggest that you change to an oral contraceptive. Consult your doctor for an alternative form of contraceptive.
