HRT Fail
« on: July 20, 2018, 02:33:26 pm »
I feel a little ridiculous. I know from the first time I transitioned what the Estradiol patch should look like. Open the foil packet, take out the patch, peel off the clear covering, and apply. However, when I opened my first foil packet two weeks ago, there was no separate patch inside. What I saw instead was something that looked like a patch attached to the foil envelope. For the first two weeks, I only attached the foil packet to my skin.  I only realized today, when I opened my third pouch, that there really was a separate patch inside. There really wasn't one in my first envelope, and I had discarded what looked like a failed covering from the second pouch from last week.

this week, though, I noticed the lettering on the clear insert, which stated it was the real patch. Here I was hopeful that I was only a few weeks away from the "tingling" when I'm really on Day One again. Now, I was able to find the discarded patch from last week in the garbage, and I've attached this second one also in hopes of catching up.

Another day in paradise.
A step backwards, when you're headed in the wrong direction, is really a step forwards.

That sucks. Throwing it away sounds like something that I would do.

I don't know if I would put the second patch on. More E doesn't mean more changes. Having a spare isn't a bad idea.
