on the forth week of the patch when you dont wear it, can you get pregnant??!

No. If you use the patch correctly, it protects against pregnancy all month long — even during the week that you’re not wearing one.

Most women find that the patch is easy to use. You’ll stick one new patch on the skin of your buttocks, stomach, upper outer arm, or upper torso once a week for three weeks in a row. You won’t put on a patch for the fourth week. During this one-week break, you will usually have your period. If you’d like to, it’s OK to have sex during the one-week break.

The birth control patch is very effective. It works best when it is always placed on the skin on time. Learn more about the patch.
