iam using the contraceptive patch but want to get pregnant now , how long will this take to come out my system .

According to the

According to the manufacturers, there may be some delay in becoming pregnant after you stop using Ortho Evra, the contraceptive patch, especially if you had irregular menstrual cycles before you used hormonal contraceptives.

There may still be some birth control chemicals in your system after stopping to patch, and there may be some effects on your reproductive organs that last after the drugs are gone. Therefore, it is recommended that you postpone pregnancy until you begin menstruation regularly after you have stopped using Ortho Evra if you want to become pregnant.

There does not appear to be any increase in birth defects in newborn babies when pregnancy occurs soon after stopping hormonal contraceptives like the patch.

Best of luck,
