symptoms reappearing even though on Vivielle dot

Has anyone noticed your menopause symptoms reappearing even though you are using your Vivelle dot patch consistently?  I am wondering if some of the patches aren't calibrated correctly with an accurate dosage.  Because of my hormone sensitivity, my Dr. has recommended I change my patch every 3 days to avoid even a slight drop in my hormone levels.  However, I have noticed sometimes I will randomly get a migraine even though I have just changed my patch that morning.  I have learned through much trial and error, to change or add another patch right away.  9.5 times out of 10 the migraine will stop.  I am diligent in changing my patch every 3 days to keep my hormone levels consistent.  Yet, every once in awhile I will get a migraine for no apparent reason...so I am wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience.

Hi,
How are you? Aside from hormone changes, it is possible that your symptoms can also be caused by other triggers such as weather changes, food or drinks. A headache journal may help identify the possible trigger to be avoided.  Take care and do keep us posted.
