If you use the birth control patch, do you find it falls off in the heat?

Mommas with the Birth control patch, do you find it has started to fall off more with this heat? I’m in Canada if that helps we’ve had +30°c weather for 3 weeks and this is the 2nd one to lift up and peel with all the sweat. I use a clear cover to help keep it down (like a bandaid but different) that my dr recommends so the edges don’t peel, and I don’t get those squares from the dust I know I’m not the only one with that problem lol. Anyways I am looking to possibly get an IUD but have heard so many crazy things it kind of worries me. Hubs are SLOWLY starting to warm up to the idea of the Snip, but he’s still a little nervous about being awake for the process and having people with sharp objects near his jewels lol. What do I do? I want to work out and such but don’t want to worry about this darn thing falling off. I am set on not having more babies just a one and done gal kinda. Delivery recovery was torture for me; I blacked out the first time using the washroom. All honesty pregnancy scares me.


Didn’t notice that but I did notice when I got pregnant on the patch​:roll_eyes::woman_facepalming:t3::joy:

I have used the nexplanon, and loved it. But some people have hated it. It all depends on your body chemistry. You can always try for a few.months, and if it doesnt work for you, you can change

Nexplanon was the best BC I used. I hated the IUD (Paragard). I’m in Alabama so keeping the patch on isn’t even an option lol.

I have had mirena for going on 10 years (replaced 1once every 5 yrs)… I have had 0 issues and LOVE IT!! It just depends on your body but I couldnt be happier. Good luck


I’m on my second Mirena and in the beginnings I love it, but around the four and a half year mark I started getting horrendous PMS symptoms and my period becomes super irregular.


I had the Mirena for about a year and a half and I absolutely hated it, very irregular periods, horrible cramps, bad depression, losing my hair, AND I gained like 60 lbs in a very short amount of time. On another note I know people who love it, everybody’s body is different.

I love the IUD. I have paragard. :purple_heart::purple_heart: highly recommend

I would seek different birth control

Do they have the depo shot there. They have been great

I’m on my second paragard and I love it when I got it out the first time it took me 6 months to come out pregnant now I’m back on it after my daughter and I couldn’t be more happier

I had the Mirena, it worked, developed terrible acne from it, cramping, moodiness… but NO BABIES! Lol so it was worth it

I used the patch for awhile and never had an issue with it. Chances are the batch you got had faulty glue making them come off easier.

I have it I’ve used it in my teens them just started using it again after having my daughter a year ago and I have actually found it to be falling off more now with the heat I have had to put another one on because it has fallen off an wouldn’t stick back on.

I use morphine patches and they fall of when it got to bloody awful

I’ve been using the patch for a few years now with absolutely no issues. In fact after the week when I’m suppose to put a new on on its so hard to come off. I too live in Canada but I put mine on my butt :rofl::woman_facepalming:t4:. I switch sides each Sunday and it has never peeled off ever. I have a 14 and soon to be 4 yr old I want to get my tubes tied but the dr won’t do it. I’ve considered the iud but I’m still not 100% sold on it yet.

So my hubs is going in for a snip in October. Yes he is awake, but there a no scalpel procedures now(I had no idea), it takes a few minutes, and a good provider will provide medication for any nervousness/anxiety. I had an IUD and had THE WORST time.

Depo sent hormones in over drive and the patch didn’t stick well for me either . My hubs got snippedvwe have no regrets the key thing to remember can’t be intimate right after the recovery time is way less for a man

I don’t recommend the IUD, It was quite uncomfortable for me even months later, I was beginning to grow really fine top lip hair like a pubescent boy, and I swear it made my depression and anxiety A LOT worse I just had it removed last week so I have to go threw a full cycle to know if it was IUD but over all it was not a good choice for me.
