is there a one-week estrogen patch????

I take estradiol 1 mg. per day and it's working fine. However, I have elevated liver enzymes and in reading elsewhere on this forum, that could indicate the estrogen is taxing my liver. I have heard the patch by-passes the liver, but is there a one-week patch? Not sure if I can remember to change a patch more often!

Thanks for your help!

Suzy,
As Peachybabe stated the Climara is once a week. The vivelle dot is 2x a week. There are also other patches available although I'm not sure on how often you change them. There's also Vivelle (not the dot) and Esclim, to name a few.

Here are some to check out

If you do not mind changing the patch twice a week the vivelle dot is about half the size of some of the other patches.

good luck to you

you don't know me, yet...

Hi , i'm 8 days post and dr put me on climara patch changed once a week, well my prescription plan always dispenses generics without asking me first, i'm sure i could probably request the name brand anyway my point is i prefered the climara patch i got at the hospital over the generic ( estradiol 0.1 mg daily) these are raised up offf the skin a bit, sorta like a foam backing anyway with the climara when i rushed to the potty i never caught the edge of it with my finger nails an nearly rip it off like i do with this one, i'm going to have to find a new spot i can tell. anyway, i hope you find the method that's best for you, i'm just beginning my journey, i hope it turns out to be an easy path.
