A birth control method in the form of a patch that is worn on a girl’s or woman’s buttocks, lower back or upper arm that releases hormones to prevent pregnancy. It is 99-percent effective with perfect use at preventing pregnancy. The Patch is worn for a week at a time, and each week it is replaced with a fresh one. After three weeks, one week is “patch free,” which is when the girl will get her period. The patch does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases and must be prescribed by a health care provider. To learn more, visit Xulane.com.
