If this question has already been discussed, feel free to delete my post. I tried searching the archives and I read the HBC FAQ and didn't find any information.
I have been on Ortho Evra (the patch) since May 2009. I've never had any problems with it. I am kind of confused, however. So since the patch is monophasic, why do I still get the typical pre-period bloating, chocolate cravings, and swollen boobs, even before my patch-free week? Does this mean my birth control isn't actually working?
