Hi Crissa Does your DR understand how much weight in water you're retaining? Did he explain why he won't change the patch dosage?

How long have you been on this particular dosage of Climara? If you've given it a couple of weeks or more, you might consider trying a little OTC progesterone cream (or ask your DR to prescribe some compounded progesterone cream)... it helps some women with the water retention.

Another thing to look at is what vitamins and supplements you're taking. Of course I take the 1500 mg per day of Calcium that my DR insists on; but I find that I need to also take 750mg per day of Magnesium with that, as well as 90mg or so of Potassium. That seems to help me keep the water retention down some.

It also helps me to keep my feet up as much as possible (most of my water retention is in my ankles) and get a lot of exercise... anything to encourage circulation.

Finally, I've found that the more I weigh, the worse the water retention problem is. I'm currently trying to lose weight and find that even the little bit I've lost has helped some with the swollen ankle problem.

Good luck! For me, the fluid retention problem is really my only symptom these days... and it seems to be the toughest to get rid of.
