I have only been using the Vivelledot for about two months and I have had some relief from hot flashes durning the day but I still have them at night not as severe. But I have been getting yeast infections which I read was a side effect.

Very effective, have never had a flash. Very easy to use. Only negative thing is I did tend to break out occasionally in chin/mouth area. Weight gain minimal. Skin, hair and nails healthy and vibrant.

Been on the patch for 7 months now, after having a total hysterectomy and all seems to be well. I have mild hot flashes off and on but nothing that can't be managed very easily.
