I'm on the patch 2 weeks now, so far so good... Only thing I'm worried about is when I shower it wrikles and I think water has got into it. It's still sticky and still on me, but would the water getting in effect the hormones??? Please help!!
this is a common complaint with patches. Some physicians recommend covering the patch while showering or bathing with plastic wrap. However, the covering should be removed after drying off, otherwise the rate of hormonal absorption might change compared to an uncovered patch. If patches are too bothersome consider another form of the medication.
