I like the vivelle dot. It's helped with the mood swings, vaginal dryness and I'm now able to sleep. My problem is the top part of the patch came off when time to change it but the sticky part is still stuck to my skin. Any ideas on how to get it off? Help!!!

I don't like the idea of having to change the patch every 3 days due to the fact that it is very easy to forget to do it.If the schedule was for specific days I think that would be easier to remember, but every three days is dificult to follow.
