I have been on estrogen patches for a little over a week now and I have always had some irritation wherever I place the patches. Today, however, was a new kind of irritation. I have actually developed little blisters...they itch and hurt all at the same time. It is so not fun! I have a call into my nurse to see if I can do another form of estrogen. If this is what is best, I will tough it out, but if there is something that is just as effective, I am all for it! Here are some pics of my lovely tummy after removing the patches. (don't mind my bloatedness!)
This one is from later in the day...the blisters are the tiny little darker areas...the rest of the red area is like a little raised itchy welt.
Fun, huh?! I have 3 new ones on until I hear from the nurse...hopefully this was an isolated incident!
Infertility....well, it sucks. I started this blog in the middle of my journey to become a parent. As I am on the brink of starting IVF #5, I decided to document the before, during and after so that I can share this story with my children someday so that they can understand how they came to be...
