Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.
Its not necessarily due to the period you skipped. If you skip periods more regularly and wear three patches in a row before having a period, your period will actually get much lighter over time.
Theres no way to know when the bleeding will stop
But if you put on a new patch at the correct time even if you are still bleeding, that will help the period to stop quicker
I hope this helps
Thank you! Is it unhealthy to skip periods more regularly?
No its not at all
You dont need to have a period while on hormonal birth control
