I know that Tri-Ortho cyclen Lo is gluten-free, but my doctor put me on the patch just because they did not want to take any chances.

Espically during the first year or so of the intestine to heal, they just wanted to bypass it totally. I was a little weary of the patch, but it is great. One less pill that you have to worry about.

amanda-

medical patches are made especially to get into your system so if a medical patch has gluten in it , it can cause reactions and get into your body because it is designed to do that..so still make sure it is gluten free.

You only get a gluten reaction if it is passed through the small intestine. This goes directly into your blood stream and should have no effect on you. I belive that it is gluten-free anyways. This is what my doctor had told me.

Yes and with celiac touching gluten will NOT cause a reaction BUT with medical patches they are meant to and made specifically to absorb into your body therefore causing a reaction.

I think I read somewhere the patches are gluten free but I do not know.
