XULANE is applied in a 4-week cycle: 3 weekly applications on the same day of the week known as your "Patch Change Day" followed by a Patch Free Week to allow for your menstrual period.*
On your Patch Change Day, you will remove your old patch and apply the new patch.
The patch must stick to your skin to work properly and should be checked daily.†
*You will be exposed to about 60% more
estrogen if you use XULANE than if you use a
typical birth control pill containing 35 mcg of
estrogen. In general, increased estrogen may
increase the risk of side effects.
†In clinical studies of a similar product
containing NGMN/EE, approximately 2% of
patches completely detached and 3% partially
detached. XULANE should not be applied to
breasts, broken on cut or irritated skin, or in
the same place as previous patch.
NGMN: Norelgestromin. EE: Ethinyl estradiol.
