The Patch and side effects?

Can anyone tell me if they have any kind of secerets on keeping the patch stuck to you? I tried it one month and couldn't get it to stay on? they said swimming and bath's shouldn't effect it but I think that it did. It made wrinkles in the patch, I'm thinking of taking a shower, I know this is grose, but taking a shower and then waiting 48hrs before taking another shower, just to give the adhesive time to stick!

Also, I have huge anxiety problems, and I've read that after three months of using the same b/c that the side effects would go away and maybe b/c would help with anxiety. especially since my hormones are all messed up being postpartum. Has anyone with anxiety problems used the patch? What were your experiences with it?

I just had a baby three months ago and the only other kind of b/c I could tollerate before having her was the nuvaring but I quite using it when I found out I had endo and had to have surgery. Two other problems with the ring was if I left it in durring intercorse he couldn't get it in, and sometimes it did slip down to where I could feel it almost coming out, which doesn't surprise me considering I have that problem with tampons too. I have a "tilted" uterus so I don't think the "tunnel" is quite straight and having a C-section didn't correct it.
