How Effective Is the Xulane Patch?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the birth-control patch is about 91 percent effective when used as directed.
What Are the Risks of Using Xulane?
As with most types of hormonal birth controls, you may experience minor side effects like nausea, headache, or breast discomfort or swelling when using Xulane. Users may also have an increased risk for blood clots, stroke, and heart attack.
What Are the Benefits of Using Xulane?
Xulane is convenient, since the patch only needs to be changed once per week, and can result in less-painful periods.
How Does Xulane Work?
The patch releases two hormones (estrogen and progestin) that help to prevent your ovaries from releasing eggs.
Where Do I Apply the Patch?
Xulane patches should be applied to clean, dry skin in one of the following locations: upper outer arm, abdomen, buttock, or back. Make sure the patch isn't in an area that will be rubbed by tight clothing.
When Should I Apply the Patch?
Wear one Xulane patch per week for three weeks, always applying your next patch on the same day of the week. Do not wear a patch during week four.
