What happens if you miss dose of estrogen?

I had a complete hysterectomy in 1982. Since then, I have been on estrogen.
Recently, my family dr said I have been on it too long and to try black cohosh or soy.
I missed a couple patches and have severe hot/cold spells especially at night, and I get moody and irritable.
My gynecologist says the health studies scared family drs and that it is fine to be on estrogen. I use vivelle dot .05.

Anyone relate??

Re: What happens if you miss dose of estrogen?

If you miss a dose or changing your patch you could have symptoms of fluctuating hormone levels such as hot flashes, mood swings, etc.

If you were feeling good before, I would demand to stay on it. Its very
hard to find a good balance. Everything is risky..but, to me, your quality of life is more important.

How long for HRT to take effect?

I missed a couple of my vivelle dot .05 last week, and put one on this past Saturday.
What I would like to know is if the bummed out feeling and sometimes anxiety can be caused by drops in estrogen?

Also, I just had blood tests for my estrogen levels and will get results in 2 weeks.

Re: How long for HRT to take effect?

Absolutely! Did they take the blood during the time period when you had forgotten to change patches? If so, your estradiol levels will look pretty low. It takes a fairly short amount of time for levels to fall.
