Climara Patch

Question for my fellow princesses. I had a LAVH-BSO on the 17th and my dr put me on the climara patch. It was placed on my back hip, left side. I had only one instance of a hot flash last week so it seems to be working. How long does it take before you know? Also I had put a new one on yesterday, front left lower ab and I seem to have a tingling feeling that goes down that leg. I didn't have it before when it was on the back, should I switch it to the back on the other side?

I use those also, and it doesnt seem to make to much af a differance where I put it, on the front or the back, other than it seems to 'soak in more' if I put it on the back side, in other words, I get kinda shaky the first 2 days of wearing on the back instead of the front.

Hi!

It's a good idea to pick the abdomen or the backside and then rotate left and right. Absorption is around 20% better on the backside, so changing from front to back/back to front can result in hormone fluctuations which may cause unwanted menopause symptoms.

I wear my Vivelle Dot on my rear and rotate side to side each time it's changed. I found that wearing it on my abdomen didn't give me as much estrogen as I needed to keep my symptoms under control.

I hope this helps!
