Thanks for writing to us.
The birth control patches are commonly associated with an irregular spotting due to hormonal changes in the body. You can wait for 7-10 days for the spoting to stop spontaneously.
In case the bleeding increases or the spotting continues then consult your gynecologist for remval of patch and further management.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
