Changing from Estradiol to Vivelle

I am 2 weeks post surgery, was on Estradiol .10 patch and had a pretty bad reaction to the adhesive from the patch so my doctor switched me to the Vivelle dot .075, doctor didn't give me any info on switching over so I just wanted to see if there is anything I need to watch out for in the way of side effects from changing. Other than the fact that I am getting used to having no ovaries

Re: Changing from Estradiol to Vivelle

Skye!

Since you've already had a bad reaction to the adhesive in the other patch, you'll want to watch for that to happen with Vivelle Dot. I've been using the Vivelle Dot for years and haven't had any problems. I hope your experience is the same.

Other than that, there's a list of possible symptoms you can experience while using Vivelle Dot just as there is a list of symptoms with any type of medication. You might want to keep a journal of any symptoms you experience and of course let your doctor know.

Good luck with the Vivelle Dot and best wishes for your oophorectomy recovery!

Re: Changing from Estradiol to Vivelle

I only had issues with the adhesive after day 4 both times so I'm hoping because I change out the Vivelle 2x's weekly I won't have the same issue.

I like the journal idea! Thank you
