I AM 38YRS OLD. I DID MY SURGEY LAST WED, AND WAS GIVEN MY FIRST PATCH. MY SISTER WHO DID HERS BEFORE SAID I SHOULD NOT USE ANYMORE, I AM CONFUSED. HOWEVER I THINK I WANT TO TAKE THE CHANCE.

You cannot make sense of menopause..that is why it should be called MENTALpause. Notice both start with men?.........LOL

I started mentalpause very early. Went through it all without taking anything. I had thought about it, but was to scared. It's all over now and I am glad I did not take anything. I am very lucky to have a husband that let me cry on his shoulder over nothing and gave me a small fan for my purse when the hot flashes it.

You should listen to your doctor and not your sister, unless your sister just happens to be a doctor!
