As I'm imagining my shower this morning, WITH waterproof tape, I guess that means I'll need to leave the tape on until it's time to change the patch -- if the tape sticks to my skin, it'll also stick to the patch, so removing the tape removes the patch. Sigh.
I was trying to imagine making a fold-over protecto-pad with the tape to lay over the patch so that I could remove the tape while leaving the patch, but it's plastered on my RUMP and I'm not that flexible and my eyes don't bend that far back not to mention the rest of me!
It seems as though trying to "simplify" my life by using natural estrogen and the progesterone cream require some adjustments that popping a pill doesn't require. The progesterone cream is greasy and requires 3-5 min to rub in twice a day, and now the estrogen patch. But hey, I'm greatful that we live in a day and age when all these options are available, and we have the opportunity to experiment.
