You apply the first patch onto your upper outer arm, buttocks, abdomen or thigh on either the first day of her menstrual cycle (day 1) or on the first Sunday following that day, whichever u prefer. The day of application is known from that point as patch change day. Seven days later, when patch change day comes again, remove the patch and apply another to one of the approved locations on the body. This process is repeated again on the next patch change day. On the following patch change day, the patch is removed and not replaced. 7 days without a patch in place, and on the next patch change day apply a new patch
