    I, too, have been on and off the patch. I tried it and hated the red itchiness of the patch, even after I take it off, the spot itches and is red for a week. I tried estrogen gel for a year, but it didn't work as well and I needed to use progesterone. So, recently, I went back on Combipatch. It's been 2 weeks. It works well for menopause symptoms, but the red itchiness drives me crazy. ... Show Full Comment

    I developed breast cancer after being on this drug for almost 3 years. There is no other breast cancer in my family and genetic testing proved that the cancer was not from a genetic mutation. three of my cancer doctor's said the cancer was because I was on the Combipatch. According to Noven's label, the risks of breast cancer are very minimal. Don't believe it. If you are taking this d ... Show Full Comment

    I have used this for 15 years successfully inhibiting hot flashes. I donâ??t have any problems with the patches adhering and I wear them for a whole week. I had some bleeding so have backed down to 1/2 patch a week which is enough for me. The company has terrible customer support and would not replace the 2 defective patches I got which did not adhere. They are ridiculously expensive.

    Was given this to help with hot flashes, mood changes, irritability etc. for those who say patch wonâ??t stay on-apply immediately after bathing when skin is clean and dry. Otherwise use alcohol to swab area clean, dry completely, then apply. I swim daily in our pool and have to peel the patches off when theyâ??re due to be removed. Have had success with patch thus far and would recommen ... Show Full Comment

    Used the patch for nearly three years. Worked on the hot flashes. They stopped completely. Unfortunately, it caused periods (heavy) every two weeks and cramps the entire two weeks before the period. I've been off the patch for about two months now and the hot flashes have returned. Seeing another doctor in a few weeks for some help!
