Birth control patch
Hear real people share their very real experiences with different methods of birth control.
Dara started taking the pill when she was in middle school to help with painful periods. When she became sexually active, she decided to get on a birth control method she wouldn’t need to remember every day. Dara chose the Xulane patch because it helps with her periods and she only needs to think about it once a week.
Dara knows the patch isn’t for everyone since it may not be as effective for people over a certain weight or BMI (body mass index). She’s also aware that it doesn’t protect from STIs. (Fortunately, condoms are awesome for that.) Still, for her, the patch is a perfect fit.
