Le livret explique comment le timbre fonctionne, son efficacité, ses avantages et ses inconvénients, les effets secondaires possibles (de même que les effets secondaires graves qu’il faut connaître), il indique les personnes qui ne devraient pas s’en servir, et il explique enfin la manière de s’en servir et où l’appliquer sur le corps. La lectrice apprend quoi faire si elle oublie de commencer à utiliser le timbre, si elle oublie de le changer ou si le timbre se décolle (partiellement ou complètement). La publication aborde également ce qui pourrait en réduire l’efficacité. Le timbre contraceptif n’est pas prescrit aux fumeuses de 35 ans et plus compte tenu des risques. Le timbre ne protège pas contre les infections transmissibles sexuellement.
