Miniville Patch-0.1 mg then reduced dosage .05 for 3+ years on the patch. NO breast cancer history in family-
June 4-2015 diagnosed with Invasive ductal carcinoma IDC grade 1. (BREAST CANCER)
It most certainly helped with the hot flashes, but not worth the risk of IDC.
Only wish I had not taken the risk of the patch.
Pain from surgery and now 6 weeks of radiation not worth the risk

I've been on the Minivelle patch for about 2 years now. Yes I sleep through the night, no longer weepy, no more hot flashes/night sweats but am up 25 pounds and that is a lot. I'm thinking about weaning myself off of the patch and maybe going on something else, like supplements from GNC.

Hit flashing all day, no sleep, irritable, no sex, moody and emotional. A total mess! Started minivelle on Thursday, had knee throb for a couple of hours. It subsided and has not returned. Today is Saturday and I feel great. Sleeping all night, had 2 mild hit flashes today. I am one happy camper!

Minivelle and weight gain
| Dayana
Started Minivelle 0.05 in February. The HRT worked almost immediately...no hot flashes, sleeping thorough the night, great mood, feeling amazing! Then... the weight gain began. Today it has been exactly five months since I started using the patch, but I have gained #10. I am also experiencing pain when I get up, walk, or stand.

Will stop the HRT for one month. Afterwards, I need to have new blood tests done and see my GYN for results. Will need to double my gym time to two-hours per day, 3-4 x/week. Watch what I eat, and journal my symptoms every day.
