Evra is a convenient transdermal contraceptive patch that is almost 100% effective at preventing pregnancy. Evra contains both artificial oestrogen and progestogen (norelgestromin and ethinylestradiol), and works in a very similar way to combined oral contraceptives (the pill) except that only one patch is required per week. Evra releases a steady dose of hormones into your bloodstream through your skin, for the entire duration of your cycle. This means that there is less chance of you experiencing mood swings as your hormonal levels change during your cycle.
You can buy Evra contraceptive patches online from HealthExpress, after completing an online consultation. The consultation will be reviewed by one of our doctors, to ensure that this contraceptive is suitable for you. If you are approved for a prescription, you can place your order with us immediately. Your prescription will then be passed on to our registered pharmacy, and will be sent out free of charge for delivery the next day.
Evra provides women with a convenient alternative to the pill. All you have to do is use a patch every seven days to enjoy complete protection. Similarly to the pill, Evra can help to regulate your periods, reduce heavy periods and reduce the pain experienced before or during your period. Each patch is designed to attach firmly to your skin, and should remain in place even while you bathe, shower, swim and exercise.
Evra's contraceptive hormones are released into the bloodstream through your skin, and once they are in your system, they work in the same way as regular combination contraceptives. Evra prevents ovulation from occurring, so that an egg doesn't get released when it's supposed to. This happens because the hormones in Evra patches, norelgestromin and ethinylestradiol, make the body think that ovulation has already happened.
As an additional measure, Evra prevents sperm from entering the womb by changing the consistency of the cervical mucous, and it also doesn't allow the womb lining to thicken enough for an egg to grow there.
Most women can buy Evra online if they are healthy and over the age of 18. You may, however, be prohibited from using this contraceptive if you have epilepsy, depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, thrombosis, jaundice or if you have heart, liver or kidney problems. Medications that can't be used with Evra include treatments for HIV infections and epilepsy, or herbal remedies such as St John's Wort. Women who are breastfeeding should use a mini-pill such as Cerazette or Noriday.
Make sure that you mention any current medical information or medications you are taking when you complete your online consultation.
Evra transdermal patches are used for three weeks (21 days) of your cycle, followed by a seven day break period, during which you will be completely protected. If you start using the patches within the first 24 hours of your period, you should be fully protected, but if you take use the patch later than that you should wait until you start using the second patch before having sex without additional contraceptive cover.
You should change your patch every seven days, so apply a new patch on day eight. The patch is designed to remain securely in place even when bathing, swimming, showering or doing sports, but make sure you routinely check whether the patch is still securely in place just in case it has come loose.
Evra is generally well tolerated by most women, but some women may be more sensitive to the ingredients than others. The most common side effects you may experience are headaches, nausea and sickness. Some of the less common side effects are yeast infections, stomach pains, migraines and dizziness. Women often experience the common side effects when they use the patches for the first time, but they should go away as your body adjusts to the hormones. If the effects don't go away or you experience anything more serious, it's best to speak to your doctor.
You can order Evra patches online from HealthExpress after completing an online doctor's consultation. The consultation will be completely confidential and will only be checked by our registered doctor to make sure that Evra is the right contraceptive for you to use. If you are approved for a prescription, you'll be able to place an order, and our registered pharmacy will make sure it's prepared straight away for free next-day delivery.
