How to apply

The Oxytrol® For Women patch is easy to apply and remove


Step 1

Open one pouch and apply immediately (see Step 2). Do not use if pouch is torn or opened.

Step 2

Apply patch immediately to a clean, dry, and smooth area of the skin on your abdomen, hips, or buttocks.

Do not put the patch on oily, damaged (cut or scraped), or irritated (signs of rashes) skin. Do not put the patch on skin with oils, lotions, or powders because that could keep the patch from sticking to your skin.

Wear the patch under clothing. Do not expose the patch to sunlight.

Do not cut the patch into smaller pieces.

Step 3

Wear only one patch at a time for four days in a row. After four days, remove the used patch and apply a new one. Each time you put on a new patch, change the place where you put it (ie, abdomen, hips, or buttocks).

If a patch falls off and you cannot press it back onto your skin, use a new patch. Apply the new patch in a different area of skin on your abdomen, hips or buttocks.

Step 4

When you take off the used patch, fold it in half with the sticky sides together and throw it away so that it cannot be worn or swallowed by another person, especially a child, or a pet.
