HOt flashes with Estrogen patch??

Hi, I just had surgery thursday but had to sleep in the buff due to really bad hot flashes lastnight. could it be the percosett causing it? No fever as I checked it, but I thought the estrogen patch took care of the hot flashes???

Re: HOt flashes with Estrogen patch??

Hi Jean!

You're early in recovery so it's not unusual to experience hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, etc. as your body depletes the hormones your ovaries made and as you adjust to the estrogen patch. It takes time to reach optimal levels with any hormone therapy so the best thing to do is give it time and keep a journal of your symptoms. Over time they should go away. If not, let your doctor know so your dose can be adjusted.

Be sure your patch is adhering properly. If it's not sticking correctly, it can't deliver the proper dose of estrogen. There are tips for making it stick, if that's a problem for you, in this link: How Can I Keep My Estrogen Patch On Until It's Time To Change It?.

I hope this helps!

I am on Estraderm 0.05 and my Dr. told me that it will take time for the estrogen to kick in. Maybe amonth or more and to be patient.
