Good for you Willa~
I had been on the patch (until a loss of insurance) and I have not had any issues with it...other than the edges look a little icky after a few days, especially since I wear a lot of dark clothing (black)
My personal opinion is that the patch is much better than depo, and you might want to ask your doctor about skipping the inactive weeks (to avoid having periods) My doctor let me do that for 3-4 cycles, so I would only have 3 periods a year. That cuts down on changes/shifts in hormone levels in the body and keeps me from having menstrual migraines which can be some of my worst. Just something to think about.
I hope Ortho Evra is more of a fit for you than DepoProvera
