minivelle is not sticking!
I do not like the minivelle patch. It does stick to underwear and/or curls up rendering it unusable. I also hate the black printing all over the patch. I have to wear more than one at a time and I feel like the tattooed lady.

Put an extra patch of Micropore (little bit bigger than the minivelle) on your minivelle patch. This keep the estropatch on it place. You can shower with this, no problem. I even went this to the sauna, steambath.

I too have had same problems. Hard to take strips off patch, patch curling or sticking to underware or fingers. need a better covering or easier way to apply without messing up. Will go back to viville dot if my insurance covers again in 2014. If not, Will need to sadly handle miniville problems if stays more afordable in 2014. Viville dot no longer on my insurance formulary and will probably not be added back to the formulary in 2014. Really unhappy.
