Where to Stick One?

Where to put your patch? Definitely not on your breast. For most medicated patch wearers (contraceptive patches included) there may not be a lot of difference, or a lot of differences that will make changes to the effectiveness or to the numbers of your side effects. The least absorption is usually the abdomen, relative to the place like the buttock. This probably has to do with the amount of fat, the way the patch lays, all sorts of variables. But one thing researchers also point out, when it comes to knowing exactly which spot would be best: The intrasubject steroid level variability is very high. So if you have questions, ask your gyno!
