Going to try it on my backside again a ... Show Full Comment

Switched from vaginal cream to the patch. I love it ! It stays on, does not irritate my skin. I can honestly say I am feeling normal... Climara is a God send.

The re ... Show Full Comment

I have had ms for 47 years. Post menopausel, I used oral Ogen for years. Then my presciption program stopped covering my Ogen but WOULD cover this patch.

After cleaning up a mess all through my livingroom and a ba ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had my uterus removed 15 years ago due to fibroids. A year later my overies quit working and I had terrible hot flashes.

I use the lowest dose, change it every other week and the only side effect is breast tenderness. Oh, and they do fall off very easi ... Show Full Comment
