The Vivelle original big patch was the best estrogen patch made. I know because I've tried them all. I used this patch for 10 years. I had severe symptoms/effects of menopause and had none of those symptoms while using this patch. The estrogen delivery was adequate, even, and consistent. I never had any problems with the patch sticking to my skin. I have allergies, and I never had any adverse reac...

This patch is a life saver for me. I had a prophylactic bilateral oopherectomy and hysterectomy in 2009 and have been on the patch since. I don't know how to live without it. I've had zero sexual side effects. My hot flashes and emotional menopausal state is are in check thanks to this patch!

I have no problem with the patch staying on as long as I apply it as directed - freshly washed / dry area without any lotion. It works well for me with no side affects. I love it and recommend it to others!

This patch does not stick, wrinkles, leaves adhesive marks and they are pretty big when you have to wear two. Dislike this patch immensley.

The Vivelle original big patch was the best estrogen patch made. I know because I've tried them all. I used this patch for 10 years. I had severe symptoms/effects of menopause and had none of those symptoms while using this patch. The estrogen delivery was adequate, even, and consistent. I never had any problems with the patch sticking to my skin. I have allergies, and I never had any adverse reaction to the adhesive. My health and energy on this patch belied my age. This patch has been discontinued. A real disaster for women, because its replacement, the Vivelle-Dot, does not work anywhere as well for many women. I am looking for an equivalent to the Vivelle original big patch.
