Info on the patch
Hi

I have been on the injection (neustrate) since 2002 and i just stopped in April as i wan to have a baby next year and i wen ton a pill called yasmin and i can't stomach it any more as i get hurt burn plus feel like throwing up after taking it plus my life is so busy that sometimes a forget to take it.

I really need to use a patch and i hear diff. stories about it, my gyna said it is a no!no! as it is new and not much is known about it. How safe is it and do i need a prescription for it!

I know someone who has been using it since 2004 and she has no complains! Please help.
