How do birth control patches (patch, ortho evra) work?
The hormones in the birth control patches work by preventing a woman's ovaries from ovulating or releasing eggs. Hormones thicken the cervical mucus which prevents sperm from joining with an egg. Hormones also thin the lining of the uterus. Contraceptive patches applied to the skin get hormones into the blood stream and are removed from the body differently than hormones from birth control pills taken orally.

The birth control hormone patch works optimally when it is changed on the same day of the week for three weeks in a row. Pregnancy can happen if an error is made in using the birth control contraceptive patch especially if it becomes loose or falls off for more than 24 hours and/or the same patch is left on the skin for more than one week, therefore, losing its effectiveness.
 



What is a blood clot and why are they so dangerous?
When a blood clot (a clump of blood) forms in a vein, it causes inflammation. If an internal blood clot breaks loose and travels through the circulatory system, it may become lodged in an important blood vessel and block the flow of blood to vital organs. The result may be a heart attack, stroke, disabling injury in the limbs or pulmonary embolism.
 



Who should not use birth control patches?
We suggest that no one uses the contaceptive patch because birth control pills are safer and just as effective. However, doctors have told us that you should not take the hormone patch if you weigh more than 198 pounds, smoke, have a history of heart attack or strokes, get blood clots in your legs, have a history of chest pain, are currently pregnant or lactating, have diabetes, and high blood pressure. You must also tell your doctor and pharmacist if youíre taking a list of about 50 prescription drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements as they affect the effectiveness of the birth control patch.
 



Should I contact Ortho McNeil about my symptoms from the contraceptive birth control patches?
You should contact your doctor and have your doctor file an adverse reaction report with the FDA. You should also consider contacting an attorney to discuss your legal rights. You should also call the FDA MedWatch at 1-800-FDA-1088.
 



If women are dying from the ORTHO EVRA birth control patches, why are they still being advertised on television?
One answer could be greed. A spokesperson for Ortho McNeil Pharmaceuticals says the birth control patches are as safe as birth control pills but we know that is simply not true. ORTHO EVRA birth control patches release 60 percent more estrogen than birth control pills and medical studies have shown that more estrogen means more blood clots and other life threatening side effects. Further research has shown that more women have died from using the birth control contraceptive patch for 4 years than women who have used birth control pills for longer amounts of time. Do you need to fight back? Contact Monheit Law for a free consultation if you or a loved on has experienced life threatening side effects and complications from ORTHO EVRA birth control patch.
