    Hi Bettyboo - I do not have any experience with this - I just want to send you a hug to offer moral support - please do not listen to the anti-hrt propaganda - i am suffereing because of it - i stopped hrt which was working perfectly for me - if this treatment does not work let your doctor try another one

      Hear, hear looking4answers.

      I agree. Anti HRT propaganda is not really helpful to some women.

      To be truthful having HRT patches have kept me sane these last 17 years. 

      I realise bettyboo this also  doesn't answer your question.

      Surely if you have been prescribed the two together by your GP it must be safe to do so? As suggested, if you feel unsure go back and find out if there are other options. You don't need the worry.

      Hi bettyboo. 

      I have never had a problem with patches falling off. Bathing, showering  , swimming... still intact. I was advised to rotate where I fix  them around my middle rather than re apply a new one in the same spot. Think that's do with the patch adhesive. Not really sure to be honest, but followed instructions... so far, so good. 

      Hope they do the trick!x

    You don't need to be terrified smile I am also in early menopause, I started with peri about 6 years ago, I am 41 now and by the looks of things very close to being postmeno. 6 years ago I didn't know I was actually starting peri just thought I was a bit mental lol! - But I started to have getting PMS which I never had, than I started to get lots of water retention, on occ. some warmth sensation etc., - anyhow, that I was peri or meno I just figured about 9 months ago. I started HRT in January this year, 1 mg as you. And gone up to 2mg. - The HRT estradiol is very very veeeryyy low dosed, compared to the Contraceptive Pill. On top of that, if one is going through early menopause (under 45 of age) than you simply only replacing/ supplementing what other ladies would still have at your age, and your body still should have. All the HRT Fuss is with older ladies over age of 50 (for the tests they've done and neg. propaganda). So really you can't compare early meno with "normal" meno, hence HRT is advised for people like you and me smile If you worried about the tablets, you can go on patches, which is what I'm going to do, they deliever more even estrogen than the tablets and lesser risk of blood clotting. All the best xox
