Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen patch bleeding

My recovery went well, except that my stomach muscles were sore (I had an open bikini cut), but now my incision no longer hurts. My concern is that I have been placed on the estrogen patch since one week after the surgery. I started having headaches, pains under my arms, and my feet started swelling more than usual. The doctor asked me to cut the patch in half, still changing it twice a week.
my doctor has me on a low dose estrogen patch. is this safe? the info says it can cause blood clots and shouldn't be used during pregnancy. any advice that you can offer would be appreciated.
2-3 days before my period. I am on a birth control pill. The gyno said that I possibly had too much estrogen in the pills, and we've tried a butt-ton of different ones. Nothing seems to deplete whatever these "attacks" are I'm having every month. Let me explain. Every month, I wake up with a KILLER MIGRAINE. Like, I've been partying for days and days... such a sickening headache. I have thrown up multiple times from them being so bad in the past- can't keep my eyes open.
I have a uterus in tact I was prescribed combined hrt progesterone and estrogen estarlis patches. Then I went to another gyno who said that recent studies have proved that estrogen only with uterus in tact is safer that in fact it's the progesterone that is toxic. Is anyone receiving the same advice?
I AM 23 AND I AM ON THE PILL WAS SEASONAL BUT KEEP ON BLEEDING NOW ON A 50MG PILL THE HIGEST THEY MAKE I HAD A BABY 6 MONTHS AGO AND I HAVE A CYST I HAVE TO HAVE IT REMOVED BECAUSE THE PILL HAS NOT HELPD IT. I WOULD LIKE FOR AS MANY PPL AS POSSIBLE TO TELL WHAT BIRTH CONTROLL THEY LIKE THE BEST IT MIGHT HELP OTHERS SO PLEASE TELL WHY YOU LIKE IT!! AND PLZ TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO ANSWER!!!
it was like that for about 6 weeks. what i did was use the birth control patch for one month to get the bleeding back to normal and to get my period back to normal. i think that your hormones are out of wack since the shot has a 3 month supply of hormones in it. you don't even have to use the patch, even regular birth control pills should work. as long as you are suppose to get your period at the end of the cycle of hormones.
I would read the booklet that comes with the patch or consult a pharmacist about the side effects as eye issues are not common with estrogen. Perhaps you need a smaller patch - you can trim your patch to help - I do that sometimes.
I've recently stopped my estrogen patch after my numbers were coming out too high but am still using progesterone. For the past month I have had a terrible time. Debilitating fatigue, pressure in the chest, pressure and pain in legs and butt, shortness of breath. At first I thought this is just the pregnancy but this feels abnormal. Even a shower is hard work. After which my heart starts racing like I've run a marathon and need a lot of rest.
I'm not sure if the blood tests for hormones are all that accurate. Have your dr. tried stopping the bleeding with estrogen and then adding a progesterone type pill...you can try natural estrodial and then Prometrium. With bleeding like this you're also probably anemic, are you taking iron supplements? I've used the time relase iron pills. If the hormones don't work you may have to consider an ablation, where they burn out your uterine lining.
i, however, do not have any pain or cramping whatsoever, just bleeding. do you know what else could possibly cause bleeding after orgasm? it's gotten to the point where i don't masturbate anymore and i don't wait to reach orgasm during intercourse with my boyfriend because it's so grotesque and messy. what could it be?
It COULD be implantation bleeding. My last pregnancy i had implantation bleeding the day before my period was due and I thought "oh here's my period starting". i was actually pregnant. It depends what brand of HPT you used that would tell you if you are pregnant or not yet. Some of them pick up as little as 25 units of HCG so you could be early on and don't have enough for an HPT to pick it up yet.

I was on alesse, found out that the patch has 20mcgm of estrogen, and 0.15 of progestin and alesse has 20mcgm estrogen and 0.10 prgestin. Could the extra progestin Im not used to cause irregularity and breakouts and to feel ill? Im so confused. kimmie?

Hysterectomy 8 years ago. I am having a small amount of bleeding. Is this common or not? I did not have my ovaries removed.

When bleeding doesn't stop, they will often prescribe Progesterone to stop the bleeding. It does stop the bleeding for the most part. This is usually standard treatment to stop lengthy bleeding as a "bandaid" solution. The root cause of your lengthy bleeding should be gotten to at some point or another as well.
i had transplant on February 11th. I had to stop my estrogen patch due to dizziness. I had brownish discharge on friday but last night Tuesday, I had blood. Monday I cramped and just knew my period was coming. Tuesday little cramping and then the blood at night. Not real red but enough to send me emotionally over the hill. My first pregnancy test is on Friday. Has anyone had slight bleeding without having to use anything and still be pregnant.
This coincided with my moving to Canada and I thought that the patch in Canada might be a different type/ dose, hence causing the mid-cycle bleeding. Family doctor checked my pap results, said there are no problems and to live with it, since it's just an 'annoyance.' Went to another family doctor a few months later, who suggested I go off Evra and back on to a 'lighter dose' pill. This didn't help, but then I stopped taking the pill altogether (Jan 2008) in order to try to conceive.
Something to discuss with your doctor. I have had a full stroke, but do wear an estrogen patch because the discomfort from just walking or sitting down was bad, let alone sex where I was bleeding. Having pain and cramps is no fun and can cause significant stress to a relationship. Good luck.
The most common side effects include enlargement or tenderness of the breasts (both sexes), swelling of the ankles and legs, loss of appetite, weight changes, retention of water, nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and feeling of bloatedness. The estrogen patch can cause skin rash, irritation, and redness at the patch site. Less common side effects are bleeding gums, breakthrough vaginal bleeding, vaginal spotting, changes in menstrual flow, painful menstruation.
In light of recent studies on the patch that report that the amount of estrogen released into the blood stream is 25% higher than originally thought, I think that the patch is actually responsible for the cysts. (I have no medical history of cysts prior to this incident.) I talked to a lawyer and they are going to look into it. Call 1-800-LAW-INFO if even think there is a remote chance that the patch could have actually been responsible for your cysts as well.
Hi I'm 37, and have been menopausal for 3 years or more, I'm currently on bio-identical hormonal replacement, estrogen (under tongue) progesterone (applied on my skin) and the Vivelle patch, I started bleeding and got off the patch, but now I'm having a regular period for the last 3 months what is going on ??? HELP!!!!
So i went to my OBGYN an he put me on the patch and said it should take the bleeding away and it did, so now i'm on 2 birth controls pretty much and now the right side of my head keeps hurting real bad. This pain has been going on for almost 5 day straight and i'm in the worst mood. I want to know if it could be because my hormones are going crazy or because of the birth controls? please help.
These often resolve themselves but can also be handled by adding low dosages of hormones (usually low dose estrogen) to the pill/patch for the days of spotting. It is also possible that your weight has changed since going on the birth control patch and your hormonal requirements have changed. You didn't state your age or how long you've been on the birth control patch which might help answer your questions. It is also possible that the patch is a bad batch.
Thanks for your reply. I am taking estrogen pills too with a estrogen patch every other day.
Hello, In a previous post, you discussed the effects of estrogen on the uterine lining after menopause, and that "After menopause, if one is given estrogen every day and progesterone for two weeks of each month, you will have periods in menopause for as long as you are on the hormones." I am concerned that I am not having withdrawal bleeding on continuous sequential HRT. No others symptoms or problems -- feeling great!
I was on vivelle patch for many, many years and ran into trouble just taking estrogen. What happened was my adrenals were having a hard time working and since everything was taken out during my hysto., I wasn't producing much progesterone. My adrenals started to steal progesterone and I started having daily anxiety and panic attacks among other symptoms. As soon as I was put on progesterone, anxiety got better. I'm on the road to recovery now but it's taking a bit of time.
