Menopause & HRT
... Is the estrogen patch a combination of both estrogen & Progesterone?... if so what are the milligrams of the combination?...
There are different brands of hormone patches. Some contain estrogen only and some contain both estrogen and a progestin. They come in different doses so that they can be tailored to a woman's symptoms.
