Hi,
How are you? Estradiol or  Vivelle patch is usually indicated for treating conditions due to menopause, preventing osteoporosis or replacing estrogen. Since this may be associated with serious side effects from long term treatment and increases the risks for heart diseases, strokes, blood clot and cancer, it is best to use the Vivelle patch as directed by your doctor. Depending on the indications also, you may need to check with your doctor about your dosing schedule. This link may help: http://www.drugs.com/cdi/vivelle-patch.html
Take care and do keep us posted.
