Best HRT without fluctuations

Hello sisters!
I know everyone's body is different - but I would love to hear your thoughts on the best from of E without the fluctuations. I am currently on the Vivelle Patch 0.1mg. I wear 2 patches and change them every 3 days. I still get the fluctuations. I have been on them for years and honestly, I don't think I am absorbing it as well anymore. I was thinking about the Femring, but I don't have a cervix - would it still work? I would love to hear your input!!
Thank you so very much!

Re: Best HRT without fluctuations

I have mental health issues secondary to surgical menopause. My hormone specialist and a number of psychiatrists have all said the same thing. Oral HRT provides the most steady release of hormones followed by patches.
I'm unable to do oral as it has a big effect on my LFT's and I'm allergic to patches. So I use implants. These have worked well for me as they only need replacement every 9 - 11 months.
You sound like me in the 6 month lead up to ceasing patches. Despite wearing x2 patches AND using gel I wasn't absorbing the estrogen.
I don't know much about the Femring but I have read about other ladies without a cervix using it. My understanding is that it is absorbed via vaginal tissue.

Re: Best HRT without fluctuations

Thank you so much for your input! I'm sorry for your struggles but am glad you have found something that works! May I ask what type of implants you have that long? I've done the pellets before but was told it made my estrogen too high.

Re: Best HRT without fluctuations

I use 50mg implants from a compounding pharmacy.
My estrogen levels as of last week are:
622pmol/L or 181pg/mL. My doctors don't consider these too high.
