    My heart hurt after being on it in 5 years, got it removed, and no longer had heart pain. I would have miniature heart attack pain. I hope it didn't do long term damage.

    Ortho Evra boobs, breasts
    Has anyone worn the Otho Evra patch on their boobs? Does it make your boobs grow really big if you do this? Why does it say not to on the package?

    Side effect of stopping Ortho-Evra?
    I stopped using Ortho-Evra on Jan 9 because I have decided to get pregnant. After I had my period, my breasts got much larger and are very sore. Is this a side effect of stopping Ortho-Evra?

    not that i'm aware of, it isn't. i've been on it and stopped for a month or so cause of insurance but i've never had that happened. you should check to see if you're preggers cause sore boobs is a sign of pregnancy...or it could be your period again.
