What is a hot flash and how to stop them?  via ⁦@nytimes

I’m on an estradiol patch for my hot flashes (an osteoporosis prevention). This is what they look like. It takes about 3 months to know if the dose is right. The patches do get a bit grungy around the edges by the end of the week. But transdermal estrogen is the safest!

And I guess if someone makes a face about the patch then I know he’s not worthy!
