Possible complications of Ortho Evra Patch

I am looking for answers regarding the ortho evra patch. I have been experiencing shortness of breath, tightening in chest, racing heart, chest pain, diziness, fatigue, etc for the past two weeks. I have since removed the ortho evra patch after reading some similar side effects online and my doctor sent me to the ER to ensure I did not have blood clots. I have seen a cardiologist and had several tests, x-rays and lab work done that has not resulted in any diagnosis. Has anyone out there experienced these symptoms? If tests are not showing anything, does it make sense to link it to the birth control patch?

Re: Possible complications of Ortho Evra Patch

I am experiencing the same symptoms... have been to the doctor 4 times now, can't seem to figure it out... I decided to take the patch off it's been about a week and a half now I am passing blood clots and large amounts of blood when I urinate when I wipe... Large clots (silver dollar size) if no clots lots of blood on the toilet paper... Only when I urinate too... very worried... doctors are running more test... just don't know it's it's related to ortho evra.....
