Climara Patch and Electric Stimulation

Patient

Q: My endocrinologist recently started me on treatment with Climara patch in order to allow my body to begin puberty (I am 18 and have not yet begun puberty). I also go to a chiropractor and get different treatments including electric heat and stimulation. My chiropractor is unsure if I should get electric heat and stimulation while on Climara patch because they are both transdermal. Would the electric heat and stimulation affect the treatment of the Climara patch in any way? Should I avoid getting the electric heat and stimulation while on the Climara patch?
