^ week post op and changed Hrt to Climara patch


Hello, I was also put on Premarin right after surgery and I had awful side effects too. I was then switched to the Climara Patch, and all the side effects subsided. The only problem that I had with the Climara Patch was that it wouldn't stay stuck to me for the full week. I let my doctor know and he switched me to the Vivelle Dot patch (which is the same estrogen, just a different brand of the patch) It is much smaller and it gets changed twice a week instead of weekly. I have no problems with this one staying stuck.

I wish you the best of luck, swinging from the vines of the jungle are no fun

Hi, Kathyjune,

I see on the post-op board that you're angry that you didn't get an answer right away. This board's gotten a lot busier lately and the hostesses have less time, so it's a bad combination for making sure that every post gets some kind of answer.

The other problem with this board is that most women come here with a specific question, get the information they want, and then move on. So women with experience in any particular thing may not happen to be here, even if it is a common situation.

It's always a good idea on the HJ to look at the linked archives. You can't see them now because the server announcement has covered them up but they're still there. At the top of the board, if you click where it says FYI, the second announcement is the list of linked archives.

When we switched from the old message boards, a hostess of the past assembled various threads and compiled the best posts from each into specific topics. If you go to

There is a lot of experience with moving from premarin to climara. Farther down in the archives (they're alphabetical) there are a number of threads on patches.

Because most of the threads are about specific information, you can always try using the search tool (the magnifying glass on the upper right corner of the board). But typing in "climara switch Premarin" produces a huge list of threads, so you may not want to wade through them. The advantage of the search tool though is that most of these women are fairly current members of the boards and you can email them for more information.

For instance, I used the search tool to find this thread from November asking your question
If you click on the little icon to the left at the bottom of each post, it takes you to the profile for the person who wrote the post. There you can click on the place for her email address (anonymous as they all are now). You click on it, a window pops open, and you can email her. If someone doesn't want any email, she can click on a box in her profile that makes her address unclickable. You can ask someone in the same boat how they're doing. Her address is invisible to you unless she replies, so you really aren't intruding.

I hope these help get you the information you want. I know it's nice when women can share the same experience, but sometimes you have to look back in time a little to make that contact.

I also hope the climara patch works for you. A lot of women have had very good luck with it.

I wasn't switched from Premarin but from Tri-Est to the Climara patch. This was about 2+ months ago. Right now I'm on a fairly low dose .05 (due to endo) but I up it this Wednesday to .075. So far no problems with sticking or anything else. I've noticed some do have this problem and some don't. Must be our skin difference? I'm feeling MUCH better on it. Only problem is anxiety but Doc says with the higher dose hopefully that will get better. Best of luck to you! And good luck (and have fun ) with the "you know"
