Evorel conti belongs to a group of medicines called hormone replacement therapy ( more commonly known as HRT). Evorel conti contains two different medicines: Oestrogen (Estradiol) and Progestogen (Norethisterone). Evorel comes in a memory pack which can be used to help you remember when you change your patches. The hormones are spread evenly in each patch.
Evorel conti is used for the symptoms of the menopause. It is suitable for women who have not had a period for at least 18 months. To prevent Osteoporosis (weaking of the bones) in women who have had the menopause and are most likely to have bone problems. Evorel conti is only used if other medicines for Oesteoporosis have been tried first and they have not worked.
Evorel conti is known as a continuous combined HRT because both hormones in the patch are released at the same time. Evorel conti patches replace the oestrogen that is normally released by the ovaries. However in women who still have a womb, taking an oestrogen hormone regularly may cause the lining of your womb to build up and get thicker. This means it is necessary to add a progestogen hormone to the oestrogen which will help shed the lining of the womb and stop any problems happening.
Use Evorel as advised by your doctor. If you are unsure seek medical advice. You can apply an Evorel patch anytime if you have not been using another form of HRT treatment. Put on the Evorel patch on at the end of a treatment cycle or one week after you finish using another HRT product..
The patch should be changed twice a week. Do not leave a break between each patch to ensure a regular supply of hormones is delivered. Change your patch the same two days every week. Most women prefer to wear the patch on the thigh or bottom. Do not apply on or near the breasts. Do not apply the patch on the same area of skin twice in a row. Do not wear the patch under elasticated areas or a tight waistband. Apply the patch to clean, dry cool skin as soon as you open the protective pouch.
Open and peel- using the notches as a guide, tear along two edges of the pouch. Remove the patch. With the protective backing facing you, bend and feel off half the backing. Do not touch the sticky side, it may not stick properly. Apply and press- apply the open half of the patch to your skin. Remove the remaining backing and press down the rest of the path. Press the patch with the palm of your hand to make sure it is firmly stuck down.
