If on estrogen patch, can I get withdrawal if the edge peels?

In brief: Estrogen patch peels
Look at the patch and see where the drug is actually located.
I think it is mostly toward the center and the edges are just the adhesive. You wouldn't withdrawal necessarily but your level might be a little less. The patches are not my favorite...They change the amount they deliver based on body temp, placement etc. You might just try taping edges down if your worried:).
