    Switched from Oxytrol patches to Gelnique. The patches worked well (retention was better and I could better handle urges) but insurance costs were much higher ($200/3 months) than Gelnique ($75/3 months)---which is the same medicine. And the patch (2x/wk) left this ring which comes off eventually, but with LOTS of scrubbing. However, with Gelnique, there are occasional small leaks that occur as soon as I feel the urge. I don't have the chance to use pelvic floor exercises like kegels. It does not seem as effective and seems that I am worse off than before I started the patch or the gel. Are there herbel remedies that are effective? Thx
