The birth control patch

I know you have to take the patch on the first day of your period for it to become effective, and if you wear it when your not on your period you have to wait 7 days before it works.

If I put the patch on a week before my period, and don't stop using the patches when I should be on my period - will it stop my period?

Or if I put the patch on when I'm meant too (first time user) on the day of my period will it stop my period?

hello birth control patch
if you put the patch on the first day of your period it takes about 3 or 4 day to stop menstrual and if you decide to use the patch to delay your period it will stop your period but be careful because this birth control is known to cause clotting and heavy flow
