Does anyone know why this is? Also, anyone that has switched from the pill to the patch that was overweight and did it work? I want to know what I am up against when I go back to

I have the vivelle dot. I'm overweight, borderline obese. To my knowledge, that wasn't an issue. I've gained 5 lb., so I'm hoping that doesn't keep going up! Talk to your doctor.

Yeah, I will definitely need to adjust something. I forgot to take my pill last night and I am so disoriented at work today. I didn't think it would be out of my system that quick. I haven't had "brain fog" since the hyst. I am so thankful for hormone therapy.
