ORTHO EVRA Skin Patch - Dangers of the birth control patch.
What should you know?

Third generation contraceptives such (the ORTHO EVRA birth control patch) have an increased risk of causing blood clots than older methods of oral contraceptives (the pill).


The ORTHO EVRA skin patch is a reversible prescription method of birth control. The birth control patch is a thin, beige, plastic prescription-based patch that sticks to the skin releasing ethinyl estradiol (an estrogen hormone) and norelgestromin (a progestin hormone) into the blood stream. Once a week a new skin patch is placed on the buttocks, stomach, upper outer arm, or upper torso for three weeks in a row. No Ortho Evra skin patch is used in the fourth week. The birth control patch releases synthetic estrogen and progestin to protect against pregnancy for one month.

The ORTHO EVRA skin patch combines progestin and estrogen and exposes you to 60% more estrogen than if you used a typical birth control pill. In general, increased estrogen exposure may increase the risk of side effects. The progestin in ORTHO EVRA birth control patch - norelgestromin first entered the marketplace in 2001. Norelgestromin is the active breakdown product, or metabolite, of norgestimate, the progestin contained in some brands of oral birth control pills.


Contraceptives are commonly referred to as second or third generation based on their progestin level. Some experts classify norelgestromin as a third-generation progestin. The ORTHO EVRA skin patch is a third-generation contraceptive. Reactions to the ORTHO EVRA birth control patch may include the following side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these Ortho Evra reactions are severe or persistent:


  ∙ welling of the hands, feet, or lower legs (fluid retention)
  ∙ acne
  ∙ painful or missed periods
  ∙ difficulty wearing contact lenses
  ∙ hair growth in unusual places
  ∙ diarrhea
  ∙ reaction at the application site
  ∙ upset stomach
  ∙ vomiting
  ∙ stomach cramps or bloating
  ∙ constipation
  ∙ gingivitis (swelling of the gum tissue)
  ∙ weight gain or weight loss
  ∙ brown or black skin patches
  ∙ bleeding or spotting between menstrual periods
  ∙ changes in menstrual flow
  ∙ breast tenderness, enlargement, or discharge

Some ORTHO EVRA reactions can be serious. The following symptoms are uncommon, but if you experience any of them, call your doctor immediately:
  ∙ shortness of breath
  ∙ severe headache
  ∙ severe stomach pain
  ∙ yellowing of the skin or eyes
  ∙ severe depression
  ∙ severe vomiting
  ∙ partial or complete loss of vision
  ∙ double vision
  ∙ speech problems
  ∙ dizziness or faintness
  ∙ weakness or numbness of an arm or leg
  ∙ crushing chest pain or chest heaviness
