Is the contraceptive patch available in Australia and if so does anyone use it?

All other methods seem to come up when I search but not much about the patch in Australia so thought I'd throw the question out there.

OP Thank you i'd seen this. I asked my doctor and she knew nothing about it which is why I thought I'd throw the question out here to see if anyone actually has it. I was confused by the article and then the fact that the doctor knew nothing of it, so before I pay more bills to go ask more doctors (only possibly be told no again), thought I'd see if it actually exists here and anyone used / using it.

SAHM I'm curious where info for this article came up. I can not find info about it's availability in Australia anywhere other than your article.
