Birth Control Methods

THE PATCH (aka ORTHO EVRA)
• This square, bandage-like thing contains all the same hormones and works the same was as the pill and the ring, so it’ll stop her from getting pregnant (but will not help her quit smoking).

• She sticks it on her butt, stomach, upper arm, or upper torso. She needs to change it once a week.

• Though it’s way less common than other hormonal contraceptives, Ortho Evra is just as effective and has all the same side effects and benefits.
