Watery gushes of discharge

I'm really looking for some help. I started the contraceptive patch Evra in July and the last month I have been experiencing gushes of vaginal discharge that soak through my knickers and leave me feeling uncomfortable. Is this a side effect of the patch? Do i need to worry? I feel like I am really noticing everything and suffer with anxiety but this gushing feeling is new to me. I'm 31 and not experienced it before. Have been tested for smear, stis and infections and all normal. Thank you

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Yes, increased vaginal discharge is a side effect of this patch. Mention this to your doctor.
Some women can have increased anxiety with this patch, it sounds like this may be the case with you? This is considered a serious side effect. Please call your doctor for an appointment.
