Stabbing/shooting pain

Posted , 3 users are following.

I hate to even ask this question, but has anyone else experienced like a stabbing pain in breasts or vaginally after starting estrogen patches? Like this gets my attention and just started today, after 3 days of patches and progesterone at night. I swear I am falling apart!

    Glad you asked, and yes I have.  I have done patches for over a year, and honestly I hate them.  Nothing feels level or steady, I get surges and weird sensations.  

    How about you?  I'd love to connect with other woman who have problems with the patch.  I'm a little tired of hearing it's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    Sorry Michelle,  I know this is hard.  I was told that the body ajusts.....but for heavens sakes I done this for a year!  I'm beginning to wonder if it's time for me to call it quits.

    Hope you feel better, cause I never have.
