Climara patch doesn't stay on for the full week

I am 3 weeks post trans-abdominal hysterectomy. The last two patches I put on have not lasted the entire week. The patches shift and leave a sticky black ring that is hard to remove and leaves my skin very dry. Any similar experiences and what did you do?

Re: Climara patch doesn't stay on for the full week

Hi

It really helped me to make sure that the skin is clean and oil free before applying the patch.

I would always remove the old patch before going into the shower, and use an adhesive remover that I got from the pharmacist to remove the extra adhesive. Then after showering, I would use a cotton ball with a little alchohol on it to make sure the area didn't have any soap or moisturizer residue on that spot right before applying the new patch.

One thing that didn't help the first weeks after my surgery though, was night sweats that would have kept anything from sticking to my skin. I just had to wait that out.

There are also patches called "Vivelle Dot" which are changed twice a week. Many prefer those, because they don't have to stick for as many days.

Hope this helps.


Kay
