    Is anyone else using ortho evra to assist with their PCOS? i am on my first week of them after waiting 5 months to start on them and I have gone through 3 patches already as they dont seem to stay on and they are really making me itch! Any other users with tips on these sticky things or any proven success with these little blighters helping symptoms?

    They are a hormone patch. Drive me mental today so it's now dealing with the mood swings of the kitchen bin!

    i have a hormone imbalance similar to pcos but not exactly pcos..anyway my gp is reluctant to refer me to anyone...i wish i could have something like implant or depo injection to stop my hormones going up and down all the time. but my gp won't refer me to anyone so far

    sorry again

    hope they work out for you

    my gp would not that familiar with my condtions. i don't exactly have pcos but have a similar hormone imbalance. i would be taking the the hormones to deal with hormone imbalance [as hormones levels going up and down all the time unpredictably] not for contraception..my gp rekons I just have to deal with the imbalance..as many women like those who have pcos are in similar situation...ie i don't have an 'illness as such'

    years ago i tried several combined hormone treatment but due to side effects i stopped

    now i want to try something depo provera or implanon to see if that has less side effects but my gp won't refer me back to specialist

    anyway sorry

    good luck to you
