Contraceptive Patch | Active ingredient(s): Ethinylestradiol & Norelgestromin | Manufacturer: Various
Evra patch is a contraceptive patch that works in a similar way to the combined contraceptive pill. It contains the active ingredients ethinylestradiol (oestrogen) and norelgestromin (progestogen). It releases both these hormones directly into the blood stream from the patch. When this contraceptive patch is used correctly, it is almost 100% effective at preventing pregnancy.
Like most combined contraceptive pills, this contraceptive patch works to prevent pregnancy in three ways. Firstly, it thickens the naturally occurring fluid in the cervix, which makes it difficult for sperm to reach the womb. It also alters the lining of the womb, making it almost impossible for any potential eggs to latch on and develop. Finally, this contraceptive patch tricks the body into thinking that an egg has already been released (ovulation), which has the effect of stopping this from happening. This three-stage approach makes Evra patch one of the most effective contraceptive methods available.
This contraceptive patch offers almost complete protection from pregnancy. The presence of both oestrogen and progestogen make Evra patch more effective than some of the progestogen only mini-pills that are available. This combined contraceptive treatment is different to some of the others, as it does not require you to take medication on a daily basis. Each patch needs to be replaced on a weekly basis, making it easy to manage your treatment effectively.
There also a number of other benefits from using Evra patch. This medication can be an effective treatment for women who are suffering from painful or heavy bleeding. Evra contraceptive patch is proven to result in lighter and more regulated bleeds. It can also be used as an alternative for women who are unable to use tablets due to vomiting or diarrhoea. The potential chance of digestive related side effects like nausea are also minimised by using Evra contraceptive patch.
The Evra contraceptive patch is a well-researched and widely available contraceptive treatment that is generally well tolerated. As with all hormonal contraceptive treatments, there are people who may not be suitable to use this contraceptive patch. You may not be suitable for this treatment if you suffer from thrombosis, heart problems, circulatory issues, severe migraines, severe diabetes or if you have a history of breast cancer. If any of these apply to you, please consult with your doctor to find the right contraceptive treatment for you.
When you buy Evra transdermal patch online at 121doc, you will be required to complete a quick online medical questionnaire.Our doctors will use the answers you provide to determine whether Evra contraceptive patch is a suitable treatment for you. It is important that you include any medical conditions that you are suffering from. Also, some medications can impact the effectiveness of this treatment, so you should include any medications that you are currently taking.
The Evra patch is a transdermal patch that supplies oestrogen and progestogen directly into the blood stream. You can apply this self-adhesive contraceptive patch on to most areas of the body providing the skin is clean, dry and hair free. Avoid applying it on sore skin or an area where it will be rubbed or torn. The innovative design makes it resilient enough to stay on during showers and exercise but easy to peel off without damaging the skin.
This contraceptive patch is used for three weeks out of every four. You must apply a new patch at roughly the same time each week. If you apply your first Evra patch between day one and day five of your period, you will have immediate protection. You can apply your first patch after this point but you will not have immediate protection, so you will need to use a barrier contraceptive method for the following seven days. You will have full protection after this period of time has passed.
After wearing Evra patch for 21 days, you will take a seven-day break. This means that this contraceptive method follows a similar routine as some of the other combined contraceptive methods, with a 21-day treatment followed by a seven-day break. You may experience a withdrawal bleed during this break period but you will still be protected. Once this seven-day break period has finished, you should apply your next Evra patch, even if you are still experiencing the withdrawal bleed.
When you buy Evra patch online at 121doc, you will be provided with the manufacturer's patient leaflet that provides full instructions on how and when to use this treatment. It also provides information on what to do if you do not apply your contraceptive patch at the correct time. Please ensure that you read this leaflet before you begin your treatment. You can download this patient leaflet on our website free of charge. If you have any questions whilst you are using this medication, please don't hesitate to contact our dedicated customer service team who will be more than happy to assist you.
Evra patch is a widely used and popular form of hormonal contraception and so the risk of side effects is low. As with all prescription medications, side effects can occur in very rare circumstances. Evra contraceptive patch has a higher dosage of oestrogen than some of the other combined contraceptives and so it may not be suitable for women who are sensitive to this hormone. Possible side effects from this treatment can include vaginal discharge, nausea, breast tenderness and headaches. You may also experience irritation on the skin around where the contraceptive patch has been applied. Most of these symptoms will be temporary in nature and should pass within a few days. If you experience anything persistent, please consult with your doctor. The patient leaflet that is provided when you buy Evra patch online will have a full list of possible side effects for this treatment.
