Switch: If side effects from the ortho evra patch are such that the question is what to do, it is probably best to either switch to a different hormonal method like birth control pills, or to the depot provera shot, an implant, or an intrauterine device.

Given ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) lo & provera for regulating period. Start ortho sun for 24 days & provera thurs 1x daily for 10. Is it ok to take it w/ortho?
