Ugh, when does it end, right?  Being a woman is just not easy.  lol.  I'm still in the night sweat phase and it's not pleasant or pretty. (nor am I when in the throes of it). From my understanding, any time you have unexplained sweating like this you should speak to your doctor about it.  While my guess is that it IS related to your hormones and patch, profuse sweating can also be a sign of an internal disorder like diabetes or thyroid dysfunction, autoimmune issue, and other things.  So, yes, I'd see your doctor.

But it very well may be the patch as hormones can affect sweating, changes in hormones especially and odor that can go with it. Good times.

Hello~I would definitely see you physician about this. Regulating hormones can be tricky and you possibly may need a different strength now of the progesterone and estrogen.

I hope you feel better soon.
