Hi there all,
Here I am again banging on about my Femseven patches...
I just cannot get them to stay on! I have tried pressing them on for many minutes, heating the area to get them to stick, covering them... bla, bla, bla but nope! They come off in the shower every time (even very quick showers!). My aches, tiredness and total forgetfulness has returned as I don't think I'm now receiving the correct amount of hormones through the patch coming off and no period this month on HRT so obviously this is the case, (my periods came back when I started HRT).
So, my Heath professional is ringing today and I just want to ask you guys - has anyone tried alternative progesterone alongside oestrogen patches? Previous to me using Femseven, Evorel patches stuck like a dream but am allergic to the progesterone in them... I thought maybe I'd ask for Evorel brand oestrogen patches and then an alternative progesterone somehow?
The clot worry is why I use patches but I've heard the risk is lower for progesterone causing clots anyway (it's the oestrogen factor that is the main clot risk??).
Eeeeeek! A girl could go mad trying to work alternatives!
Thank you in advance... I'm 46 and so fed up of trying to stay on top as without HRT my body aches and brainfog is just unbearable. 😩 Just want my old carefree pre-menopause life back... 😢
Have a good day all.
