TTC and Estrogen Patch Vivelle

An_248927 posted:
I was put on estrogen patch (low dosage vivelle patch) because I was diagonsed with low estrogen that caused severe PMS two months ago.


I want to ttc and have been tracking ovulation - I always ovulated around day 11 based on OPKs. I had very regular periods. The estrogen patch definitely helped with PMS however, ever since going on the patch I have not had a period. Gyn says I should wear the patch all the time.


Since my period stopped all of a sudden after starting the patch, do I have stop to get a regular cycle again? Should I only wear it on specific days instead of all the time?
