Vivelle Dot Patches


#1

Question for vivelle patche users…I am using these patches and I am on my 2ww. I just noticed today that one of the four patches is partically not sticking. Should I replace it? The patches are not due to be replaced until tomorrow. Thanks.

That happened to me as well. I never asked my RE, but I went ahead and replace the non-sticky patch, then just changed it again with the next scheduled change. They’re designed to give the same level of hormone from beginning to end, so it’s not like you’d get an extra large dose if you switched it now.

PS: If you haven’t figure it out already, baby oil helps remove the sticky residue…

and cleaning the skin with rubbing alcohol helps then to stick better
