Combipatch and heavy menstrual bleeding

I began taking the combipatch 50/250 on 6-20-10 and for the past week I've experienced very heavy menstrual bleeding . Is this normal ? I called gyn. and they advised me to call this Friday if bleeding has not slowed or stopped. Anyone out there ever experienced this ? I felt GREAT the first 2 wks on patch , but didn't expect a heavy period to start , esp. since I haven't had one in almost a year !

Re: Combipatch and heavy menstrual bleeding


If you've looked around the message boards of this site, you've probably figured out that the focus here at HysterSisters is support for women who are seeking information about hysterectomies, as well as for those who are scheduled for or recovering from that surgery. There are hormone forums on this site but they are specifically intended for women who have had a hysterectomy, with or without an oophorectomy. The hormone needs of a woman with an intact uterus and ovaries (like yourself) are different from those of us who no longer have those organs and our experiences won't necessarily be the same.

I do know of two popular website communities that are geared toward support for women in natural menopause. One is and the other is Have you visited those sites? If not, I hope you will because I'm sure you'll get the best support from women who can most closely relate to your situation.

If, at some point, you find yourself in need of information to help with a hysterectomy decision, I hope you'll check back here.

Sending all good wishes!
