    Is it possible that I could be pregnant if I’ve been use the ortho-evra patch form of birth-control? I followed the instructions correctly and I am about to start my fourth cycle of patches. However, I haven’t had my period after I went off my third patch for my third cycle. I did, though, get breakthrough bleeding as they call it for about a week aroudn the time I started using my third patch. Could that have been my period, just a week early? I have been having cramps for about three days now but haven’t gotten my period. I’m not sure if it’s all stress (i’ve been dealign with a huge family/boyfriend situation for the past month and school) or I’m just insanely paranoid. please help!

    Faith,

    I’ve never used the birth control patch. From what I’ve read it is about the same effectiveness as regular birth control pills. If used correctly birth control is fairly effective at preventing pregnancy. However, pregnancy is possible even if birth control is used. The only 100% way not to get pregnant is not to have sex. I would guess that you are not pregnant. I can understand how nervous and worried you feel, I can relate from when I had a couple of pregnancy scares several years ago. I would take a pregnancy test to find out for sure. Good luck.
