There's nothing wrong with seeking a second opinion, but I think the doctor was being appropriately conservative in not doing an ultrasound given that it only happened one time. I understand your concern given your family history, and you could certainly insist on an ultrasound if you wanted, but I don't think one heavy period is really indicative of one thing or another. If it happens again, you might want to get an ultrasound before you switch birth control methods. There are lots of reasons for heavy periods that don't involve your fertility.

Thanks for your input! I really hope that it was a fluke and nothing other than that. I can't help but think that I was preg and miscarried but given the dates when I apply the patch and the date that I had sex, it just doesn't add up. I will hope that next months isn't bad!

There's no real reason to think that you were pregnant unless your patch partially came off or something. Were you sick or on a new medication this month? Were you stressed out? Was anything different at all that you can think of? Maybe you started a new diet or exercise routine?
