I tried switching to this after years of Estraderm use because it was a once a week patch. GUESS WHAT! The blood levels of estrogen last only 4 days before they rapidly plummet to zero. I tested my blood, I am a physician. Several Gyn's confirmed what I thought. Don't use this for a full week and think you are protected. The FDA should pull this off the market if they don't change their claims on the dosing.

I am post menopause. This medication has worked wonders for me. I have been taking it a long time and wonder if I should stop. I tried stopping on my own and I had headaches and severe feelings of irritation. The recommendation to discuss this with your family physician is good advice.
