Dear menopause patients,


I am really sorry there are supply issues with some of  the transdermal products specifically oestrogel and  now sandrena

The alternative non oral oestrogen comes in patch form, one squirt of oestogel is equivalent to a 25 mcg patch

Most patches last 3-4 days, they include evorel, estradot, generic etradiol, all of which come in  25-100mcg strengths.

You would continue to use your usual progestogen as prescribed (utrogestan usually)
