I am 34 years old. I recently stopped taking ortho evra (the patch) I stopped putting it on one week before my period was to due so basically I stopped using it with one patch to go. I am trying to get pregnant and I am wondering how much my cycle is off by doing this (my period started 5 days earlier taking it off early) Thanks
Since you have got your period, you are likely to be fertile and can try for pregnancy from 8 -18 day of the cycle as those are the most fertile days that is assuming you have 28 day cycle routinely. Now, the fertility returns immediately on discontinuing the patch. Starting the period earlier doesn't make you any less fertile.
Hope this helps. Regards.
