When I Change My Patch

Good Evening Ladies...
I currently use the Vivelle .05 patch and testosterone cream two times a week. It seems that when I wear the patch on my left upper behind, I do great, no hot flashes, not night sweats, no anxiety or the such, but when I switch over to the right side, I feel great on Thursday morning and evening, but come Friday, I have the flashes, irritablitly, palpatations. etc...
Does anyone else seem to have this problem? Can I keep the patch on the left side all the time? I was at a fairly decent place in the hormone jungle up until a couple weeks ago, I started to notice this problem and it became a patteren.
Thanks for the help...

When I Change My Patch

Hi Diana I don't have that problem with my patches... I can wear them on either side with equal success You can, if you want, stay with one side, as long as you rotate the spot you put the patch on. If you were to keep putting the patch on the same spot every time, eventually you'd find the area would form a lot of new blood vessels right under the skin, as your body tried to get more efficient at grabbing the estradiol out of the patch.
