Evra patch- is it safe to continue?

Hi

Im currently using the Evra patch contraceptive. however, an article on health 24 (12/5) mentioned that the patch is unsafe and is being slowly phased out. Should I discontinue?

It really depends how old you are, if you have risk factors for clots or heart attacks, whether or not you smoke. It might be best to see your gynaecologist for an assessment of your risk factors.
