    This medication resulted in a blood clot (DVT) in my right leg and left arm. It was caught in time and treated with Lovenox and Coumadin.

    I had almost immediate releif from hot flashes and insomnia, but after 4 weeks on the combi patch I started spotting/ bleeding, cramps and tender breasts. Now GYN wants to do a Endometrial biopsy...it seems from reading that bleeding is common symptom of the patch. I'm not willing to put up with the bleeding and cramps....I think that's worse than the hotflashes! I thought this was the ans ... Show Full Comment

    I am 53 and perimenopausal. I was looking for treatment for hot flashes, mood swings and fatigue. The patch worked to treat those symptoms pretty much immediately - what a relief! Unfortunately my problems with hit have been bleeding and weight gain. I hadn't had a period in 6 months and have had bleeding for about 6 weeks off and on since I've been using the patch. I have also gained 5 ... Show Full Comment

    I am a 55 year old who has suffered horribly for three years with severe hot flashes day and night - often six or more per hour. Started the patch after suffering side-effects from the HRT pills. The patch worked beautifully almost right away, for the first, two, weeks.
