I'm now on HRT 7.5 months and my doctor has now introduced a third prescription into my regime.
On top of the antiandrogen and estradiol pills I now have patches to wear full time too. Which I am self conscious about despite being completely out of sight.
This I have to say about wearing patches:
You'll never realise just how much your skin folds and stretches until you do. You try to find a spot away from skin creases and folds but it'll make no difference. My skin pulls and bunches around the patch whenever I move making the whole area around it super itchy. Incidentally though the patch itself isn't causing irritation. I think it's just a new sensation that I'll eventually get used to.
My hormone levels haven't been behaving themselves which is frustrating. My T levels have dropped right off, but so has the E.

Im on a twice weekly patch. I had the same issue last time because its rectangular and i put it on lengthwise. There are two creases now. When I took off the last one the entire area was reddened around the pores. Doesnt seem good. I think the patches are just for starting out though.

My patches were introduced to complement the pills, as my hormone levels, both T and E are below acceptable levels. Waiting for the results from the latest bloods. I could live without the patches as I find them to be a real nuisance
