Forget to use evra patch

I am 28yrs old a mom for 2 kids. I am using evra patch. I used it for 3 week, and the 4th week is a patch free week. But now i forget to start using the another 1st patch at the 5th week. Should i just started to use it at the 6th week?

Good day! Thank you for contacting us.

We understand your concern regarding your missed contraception. For your information, if you missed your first patch after the patch free week:

  1. Apply a new patch as soon as possible
  2. Keep the same patch change day
  3. Finish the cycle of patches and start a new cycle of patches without a patch-free week
  4. Consider using additional or backup birth control method, for example 7 days of contraception pills
