The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Xulane patch: You are probably just having a "period" which is appropriate on this form of birth control. You are protected against pregnancy if you started the patch at the outset of your last normal period.

Period: Is this the first time this happened? Have you ever missed a period before? Could you be pregnant? Those are common questions to ask given the one you sent.
