which I gather is an estrogen patch--I had injections instead. Otherwise, your protocol sounds pretty similar to mine. As for pharmacies, we used the Walgreens specialty pharmacy (phone order) as it was the one our clinic recommended. I must confess I didn't shop around because the nurse said that some companies are less reliable. It's very important to get your meds on time, and I wouldn't want to be wondering if the discount pharm would deliver.
