How Does the Xulane Patch Work?

The patch works similarly to other hormonal contraceptives, like birth control pills. It prevents pregnancy in three ways:

  1. Stopping Ovulation: The patch prevents the release of a mature egg from the ovaries.

  2. Thickening Cervical Mucus: This makes it more difficult for sperm to fertilize an egg.

  3. Thinning the Uterine Lining: This makes it harder for a fertilized egg to implant in the uterus.

After applying the first patch, you should wait seven days for it to become fully protective against pregnancy. Use a backup contraceptive method, such as condoms, during this time.
