Screw it!! Just put a higher dose patch on ... can’t stand this!

Posted , 7 users are following.

i was on .5mg of estrogen and just went to change it and i must have taken it off or it fell off? i wondered why the past few days ive felt SO AWFUL!

i have epstein barr virus and i feel awful most of the time anyway but hormones help with everything so dr upped my dose and although i was reluctant to go on a higher dose ive just slapped it on .75 mg.

wondered if anybody else is on the higher dose ?

    yes my dose was upped, after going back to the doctor, as i was continually struggling

    went to 75mg

    Ended going back , patches fell off like you said, so didnt ever seem to be getting full amount over the three days it was stuck on/ off!!!!!

    STRUGGLED, trying to work full time, be a mother, a wife, and all the other things thatt we have to deal with.

    I looked into the GEL, but was advised not to use it????

    ive now looked to see a herbalist

    ive started taking herbal remedies, which help

    I Was thrown into early menopause due to Cancer, and this is 18 mths on, im still not settled in myself to be honest

    DAILY Struggle x
