Hi all, hope you are well well?
Background here: have not had a period in around 7 months (actually 2 light periods over previous 13 months). Suffering with flushes like never before, also wired and angry, not like me, snapping at one and all.
I found a box of estradot .25mg patches which I never used (fear of HRT), I confess should not have done, but cut one in half and stuck on arm.
I started to feel weird, however flushes went and during 1 week felt strangely in control, able to string sentences together...however progessing on began to feel low/depressed/hopeless and the feeling gets worse that is until I have to apply another half a patch. The effects lessen as patch needs to be replaced.
Flushes have lessened, blood sugar levels have stablised, but what gets me is this blessed depression?
I thought in my naivety that depression would be the last thing I would suffer with when using an oestrogen patch?
The exact name of this stuff is Estradot (Extradiol hemihydrate) 25 mg, fairly low dose.
I was just so desparate, I decided finally to give them another go.
Are there any other better transdermal patches out there, could it just be the type of estriadiol..
Sorry ladies, any help much appreciated.
(I probably should not have cut them in half, but i am a total novice when it comes to all things HRT!)
