Evorel Conti Patches
£15.00 – £65.99
Natural levels of oestrogen production begin to decline during a woman’s menopause. Evorel Conti is classified as a ‘continuous combined’ HRT because it contains the female hormones oestrogen and progestogen, which are both constantly released.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), which is what Evorel Conti is, is used to treat women who are starting to show signs of menopause.
How does Evorel Conti work?
During menopause, a woman’s body starts to make less oestrogen on its own. Evorel Conti is called a “continuous combined” HRT because it has both oestrogen and progestogen, which are female hormones that are always released. These hormones work to restore a woman’s natural levels and counteract the effects of menopause.
Why would you want to use Evorel Conti?
Some of the signs of menopause are hot flashes (especially in the face, neck, and chest), irregular periods, night sweats, weight gain, hair loss, and changes in mood.
These symptoms can sometimes get in the way of daily life, so HRT drugs like Evorel Conti can help restore the natural balance of hormones.
How do I use Evorel Conti?
Evorel Conti can only be bought with a doctor’s prescription. Always do what your doctor tells you to do and read the patient information leaflet that comes with your medicine. There are different doses of Evorel Conti, and your doctor will try to give you the lowest one that will help your symptoms.
Evorel Conti comes as a sticky patch that you should keep on your skin until it’s time to get a new one. Your Evorel Conti patch should be changed every 3 to 4 days, or twice a week. It’s best to do this on the same two days every week (like Monday and Thursday).
If you aren’t using any HRT right now, you can start using Evorel Conti on any day that works for you. If you are switching from cyclic or sequential HRT, you should start using Evorel Conti the day after your last cycle.
Make sure your skin is clean and dry before you put the patch on, and then peel off the backing to get to the sticky side. Keeping your fingers away from the sticky side, put the patch on your lower abdomen, thigh, or bottom and press gently for about 10 seconds. Avoid the area around your waist, which can get rubbed by clothes, and never put the patch on or near your breasts. Try to move the patch a little each time you change it so that the skin doesn’t get irritated.
The patches are made to last through normal things like working out, taking a shower, or taking a bath, so you shouldn’t have to worry about it. But you should check it after these things to make sure it’s still there.
In the first few weeks, you may have some light or spotty bleeding. However, if the bleeding is heavy or doesn’t stop, you should call your doctor.
Evorel Conti dosage
Evorel Conti patches have a surface area of 16 sq cm and have 3.2 mg of estradiol and 11.2 mg of norethisterone acetate in them. They release 50 micrograms of estradiol every 24 hours (corresponding to a release of 170 micrograms per 24 hours).
Remove the patch if you use too much Evorel Conti. Because of how it’s used, this isn’t likely to happen, but if it does, you might feel pain in your breasts or have bleeding in your uterus. If your symptoms don’t go away, call your doctor.
Change the patch as soon as you remember if you forget. No matter what day this happens, you should go back to changing the patch on the same days as before. Don’t double a dose to make up for one you forgot.
Side effects & precautions
You should always talk to your doctor first before using Evorel Conti. If any of the following are true, you shouldn’t use Evorel Conti:
If you have had breast cancer before or think you might have it,
If you have a type of cancer that responds to oestrogens,
If you have bleeding that can’t be explained, go to the doctor.
If the lining of your uterus gets too thick,
If you have a blood clot in a vein or have ever had one,
If you have a problem with your blood clotting or have ever had a disease that was caused by blood clots in the arteries,
If you have had liver disease before,
If you have porphyria, a rare blood problem,
If you have an allergy to any of the parts of this medicine, do not take it.
Your Evorel Conti prescription may also be affected by a number of other things, so tell your doctor if any of the following are true:
If you have ever had fibroids in the uterus
If your womb lining has ever grown outside of your womb, you may have endometriosis.
If you have a high chance of getting blood clots,
If you are more likely to get cancer that responds to estrogen,
If your blood pressure is too high,
If you have an issue with your liver,
Those with diabetes
Having gallstones means that
If you have migraines or really bad headaches,
If you have a disease that affects many organs and affects your immune system,
Having seizures means
Those with asthma
If you have a disease that affects your hearing or eardrum,
If the amount of fat in your blood is very high,
If you have too much fluid in your body because of heart or kidney problems,
Evorel Conti can affect or be affected by other medicines, just like many other medicines with active ingredients. Some of the medications you may be taking that could cause this are:
Medicines to treat seizures
Medicines for tuberculosis
Medicines for people with HIV
St. John’s Wort is used in herbal remedies.
Other medicines that fight infections
If you are taking any of the above medicines, you should tell your doctor so they can help you decide if Evorel Conti is the best thing for you to do.
Taking HRT can make it more likely that the lining of your womb gets too thick, that you get cancer of the womb lining, or that you get breast cancer. Pay attention to your body, check your breasts often, and tell your doctor about any changes you notice.
Blood clots happen more often in people who use HRT than in people who don’t, especially in the first year of using it. Again, you should keep an eye out for any possible signs of a blood clot and call your doctor if you notice anything different.
When people use Evorel Conti, the most common side effects are:
Skin irritation where the patch is put on
Have a rash or feel itchy
Feeling dizzy, headache
Having a bad mood or feeling sad
Feeling sick or having stomach pains, having diarrhea
Bleeding, spotting, or a period for the first time
If you have one or more of these side effects, especially if they last or get worse, tell your doctor right away. Also, if you have any serious side effects, you should call your doctor right away.
