Am a 60 yr young woman active and outgoing. I stopped my period late in life age 57. For the past 2 years I have been suffering with hot flashes. Some sort of roseasa on my cheeks. The flashes have become moderiate to severe. I am not depressed and have minimal viginal dryness. I have a severe lack of labido. my doctor put me on activella pill 1mg/0.5mg. I took them for 4 days on the 2nd day my flashes were worse and I have severe headaches. The pill caused a mettalic taste. I stopped on the 5th day. Would the patch make any difference??? Help
