Has anybody tried the patch? What are the pros and cons in your experience (I know everyone is different)? Just looking for something easier thatnthe pill but I dont want the long term effects of the pill or the iud.

    I'm on Mirena now but my oldest stepdaughter has been on the patch and has recently been getting a rash from it.  We have an appt next week to talk to her gyn about switching.
