Vivelle Dot patch not sticking

I have been using the Vivelle Dot since January and it's been working. I asked for and got advice on where to place it; etc and it's been fine. Up until last week. All of a sudden - it doesn't want to adhere to my skin. I make sure that my skin is clean, that I don't use any creams and that all of the old adhesive has been removed. I rotate the patches between my left and right using front (near incision on each side - there's just enough room) and also on each butt cheek (where my jeans pockets hit). The past week, I see wrinkles in the patch and it just doesn't look like it's completely sticking. I am now starting to notice (and it could be that we are finally getting some Spring like weather - I just don't know) that I am starting to get some hot flashes again and sweating at night. I was finally rid of all of that and now here it is again! I really don't want to call or go back to doc unless I have to. I am just sick of all of that. I will go if I need to - just tired of going. Any ideas? Anyone else have the same or similar?

I had trouble with the wrinkling too. I was following the directions and applying it to my abdomen, but then the wrinkles started. I also started getting night sweats when the patch was not completely on. I've started putting it on my hips (on the side toward the back) , it seems to be working better there. I think others have placed something over it, but so far this is working a little better. If I get more wrinkling I'll have to try something over it.

I've also had a problem with wrinkling, or, the V-Dot catching on my jeans as I pull them on or off, and then I wind up with low-estrogen symptoms. I have found that applying a clear non-latex band-aid over it helps.

I've found that if I put the patch on vertical than horizonal it doesn't wrinkle as bad. And closer to hips than belly button. I like it better on my backside, but get more even dosage if I put it on my tummy, so even dosage wins !
