This was prescribed for me by a doctor that is supposed to do bio-identical hormone replacement. But I found this contains progestins, not progesterone. Progestin is a synthetic drug similar to progesterone. And many people feel it's the progestins that have caused the adverse side effects in hormone replacement. I will no use progestins. I have a call in to the doctor to switch to a estradio ... Show Full Comment

I am 55 and going through full blown menopause with very severe symptoms, night sweat, constant hot flashes and anxiety, depression. My doctor prescribed the combipatch and within a few days I felt normal and happy again. It saved my sanity... The only side effects I feel is weight gain. So I am trying to cut back on portions and exercising more.

I feel so much better. I had severe hot flashes with an extremely high heart rate. It took about 2 weeks for total comfort but so far it has worked.

Had been having hot flashes, night sweats for some time. GYN discussed HRT with me @ annual visit but I refused. Those were my only symptoms till 5 months later.

Also had pain during intercourse and experienced minor bleeding and severe burning afterwards once. Called nurse @ GYN's office ... Show Full Comment
