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.
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.
