Contraceptive patch

Hi wondering if anyone has any experience of the contraceptive patch at all?

I currently have the implant and have been happy with it until about the last 6 months it's due out in March, I'm currently getting extremely long and light periods which are a pita. I'm not too keen on the coil/iud and I have been on the pill breifly but my memory is terrible and I found it really difficult to rember to take the tablet at a similar time each day.

I was on the patch for around two years, absolutely loved it. So easy to use, (I tended to find that popping it on my tummy area was easiest, can go on arms/back/bum but back was hard to do myself, arms got caught all the time!) and was great as it lasted a week a time. I really liked it, don't really know why I ever changed to be honest! Only thing is I was told I was a bit mood-swingy for the first couple months but settled once used to it! Would definitely recommend.
