Women of Tumblr…
I have a question for those of you who have used/use the birth control patch, Ortho Evra.
I started this little bastard of a patch last week, on Thursday. Not even 24 hours after I put the first patch on, I started my period. Very heavy period, no stopping or slowing down of any sort. I also noticed, starting on the first day of my period, that I was cramping so bad that I couldn’t stretch. The kind of sleepy stretching you do in the morning when you wake up. I still notice pain in my lower abdomen when I’m stretching, kind of like my muscles are ripping in half.
I’ve been on my period for 8 days now, still bleeding very heavily, still no sign of stopping or slowing down. Literally one tampon after another.
Any of you lady folk ever had this issue?
