Have you taken it?
Do you take it?
Which type?
What have been the benefits and what is your long term plan with them time wise?
What have been the negatives or unwanted side effects?

I'm into the second half of my first week wearing an Evorel 25 patch which is oestrogen only and the lowest dose which is where you start. From what I've read no benefits are felt until you've increased at least to Evorel 50, but they also do 75 and 100.

What were the negatives that outweighed any positives for you hep? Mind, if you're not having any adverse menopausal affects there's no need to use any anyway.

Long term risks of heart disease, blood clots etc ... and I couldn't wait for my periods to actually stop!

I am feeling a lot better physically and emotionally on the oestrogen patches, with the exception of my back pain. I might ask for one increase of dose because I've definitely felt better for being on them.

My only problem is because you can't put them on the trunk of your body, it's legs and arms. turn over once in bed and that's the patch gone! When I was with my xh and I had them following my full oophorectomy at 34 sometimes I'd go to sleep wearing a patch and we'd wake up and xh would be wearing it! Which was quite funny. You would have thought that they could have improved their stickiness in time.
