forgot to put on my patch

i'm 4 weeks post-op and i'm having the hardest time remembering to change my vivelle patch every 3.5 days, so i've kept it on too long a few times... however yesterday i took off the old one and completely forgot to put on a new one... i didn't realize it until i went to a friends house and started having a hot flash... she was kind and opened up windows for me while everyone else was freezing...

i guess it'll take awhile before it becomes a habit...

Re: forgot to put on my patch

yeah, I have to check myself, mentally, to see what day it is. In fact I have stopped worrying about the half day thing and just change it the morning of the day it needs to be changed.

Once your stores run out its easier to remember...the first few months post op your body uses stores...then you really need HRT to replace totally.
