A Birth Control Patch (a contraceptive and a birth control option) is a small patch that sticks to your skin to prevent pregnancy. The patch lasts for a week and hence is considered to be more convenient than having to take daily birth control pills. You need to only apply the patch for three weeks followed by a patch-free week. The birth control patch is a thin, beige-colored plastic patch that sticks to the skin. It is used to prevent pregnancy. The birth control patch is commonly called Ortho Evra, its brand name.
The SIMPLIFY Birth Control Study is a clinical trial being conducted across the United States for a new birth control patch. The study is called Simplify, is designed to see if the birth control patch is an effective and safe birth control patch in women who are sexually active (have intercourse with a male partner).
