"I’m 60 and had my ovaries removed 11 months ago. So for 5 months I have been using a new bio identical biest estriol & estradiol prescription along with progesterone gel. My hot flashes were bad, my vaginal irritation was unbearable. I Changed to estradiol gel and progesterone gel. My Hot flashes got so severe and vaginal irritation was so unbearable. I Finally decided to try the estradiol 0.075 patch changing 2 times a week. In just 2 days saw incredible improvement in hot flashes, mood energy, motivation, emotional mood. It gave me relief from all my symptoms. The brand I was given is manufactured by Mylan, which was given absolutely horrible low reviews. I was scared it wasn’t going to work for me, but decided to try it anyway because I was so very miserable. Can’t tell you how much relief I am feeling being in the patch and taking the progesterone micronized 100 mg pill. It’s been a lifesaver for me."

"Last month walmart pharmacy replaced my estradiol patch to "mylan" manufacturer. I was shocked to see how big this patch is, it's bigger than the mouth of a colostomy bag, as thick as a regular cotton rounds, and it's not sticky enough to stay for days. I shower twice a day, the patch is off after 2 showers, technically I have to change my patch everyday. The worse part is aside from the rashes l have now on my pelvic area because of this patch, l'm having hot flashes. It's not effective at all. I cannot do anything since my insurance already paid for 3 months of refill. And since I have to replace patch everyday, l already run out of it. Now, l have to endure more "hot flashes" for 2 more months. This is the worse patch l used since my hysterectomy. Well, thank you "Mylan" for making my life miserable for 3 months. I will rate negative on the effectiveness if it's available on the choices."

"I did not have a positive experience with this patch. I received the Minivelle dot and used it for a thin uterine lining. I wore it for about an hour and felt hot, clammy, dizzy, and my heart rate went through the roof. I also started sweating profusely. I immediately took it off and the symptoms went away a few hours later. Several months later, I unknowingly received the same script from my endocrinologist for Minivelle for primary ovarian failure due to endometriosis and PCOS complications. I decided to try it again - this time with a Xanax in case the symptoms were due to anxiety. They happened again anyway so it was confirmed that it was the patch. I am very sensitive to hormones and have not tolerate many forms of birth control pills, so I am not surprised."

"It's rather early for me to be rating this product considering it has been just under 2 weeks since I started it. However, I am very pleased with it so far. I was on Vivelle Dot for about 4 months and after the first month, all my symptoms came back. I have just started this patch and so far it is wonderful! I feel a million times better, my hair is better, no more hot flashes and I'm starting to sleep again! The only complaint I have is that the patch is HUGE and it's thick and beige rather than small and clear like Vivelle. But at this point, I could care less what it looks like as long as it works! "

"I started getting perimenopausal at age 34. I went on the estraderm patches which were a 5 layer gel patch, you could actually see the gel medication. They were the first estradiol patch produced and have probably been out of production 7 years. They were replaced by all these much cheaper to produce single layer patches with just a sticky adhesive side which is supposedly the drug delivery system. Climara, Vivelle, etc, NONE of them worked on me, my blood estrogen levels were at the most 19. Transvaginal delivery didn't work either. I don't believe in oral estrogens so now I inject myself IM every 2 weeks with estradiol valerate."
