Ortho-Evra (bc patch) Users: HELP!! (TMI warning)

SIGH

It’s my first month on The Patch. I used Depo-Provera for 4 1/2 years previously, and I would just like to know what I can expect.

This is my first patch-free week. I know that periods are supposed to be (I think) lighter and shorter, like with the pill, but I haven’t HAD a period in 4 1/2 years. What has your experience been like? I mean, I’ve got a pantiliner, a super tampon, and a regular tampon in my purse, Just In Case - and because I don’t know what’s a-comin’!

Help!!
