I was supposed to put 2 patches on my belly on Tuesday and forgot! I put them on at 8:00pm last night. Do you think that could have messed up my little embies??? I woke up last night with a claustrophobic feeling from these patches. I don't know why. I wanted to take them off! I felt naussia and shortness of breathe (like a panic attack). I finally got over it. I really don't like having these things stuck to my skin! What are your experiences with these darn patches???
Why do you need patches - I wouln't put anything there for now - it will overheat the area - and you not suppose to expose yourself to heat at all during that time. This feeling you had is normal - this is progesterone related and these are probably progesterone side effects. You have to relax, nothing you can do at this stage, but wait. Take it easy and get some rest - a lot of baby dust to you.
I think you are fine too. I think it's to do with coming off all the hormone injections.....to help level you off. I have been using Vivelle patches too, and what they described to me was that after all the injections, when your body starts coming off of them, your body thinks it is in menopause. So, from what I gathered, it helps counteract this. It's been a while since I went thru the medication class, but I'm almost certain that this is right.
As far as symptoms from the patches, I didn't know what symptoms came from what. I felt like my body was on overload from all the meds!!! lol anyway, good luck!! :)
That makes me feel a little better. I was supposed to see the RE today for a progesterone level blood draw and FORGOT!!!! My butt was on the couch all day relaxing and I completly forgot! Can you believe it? The nurse called me at 5:00pm to tell me I missed my appointment and I need to come in tomorrow morning. Why wouldnt they call me earlier today? Oh geeze! Hopefully, I won't miss my 8/9 Beta appt.! 8-)
Sounds like you may be pg!! Those hormones are already kicking in and making you forgetful!! It does happen. I have slipped up on a couple of things, and thought, where is my head? I'm usually spot on. Anyway, good luck tomorrow and keep us updated! :)
