Evorel are HRT patches available in four strengths starting from 25mcg to 50mcg, 75mcg and 100mcg. Containing oestrogen only, the varying dosages make it highly tolerable and they're particularly popular with women who have had a hysterectomy.
The patches help to relieve the symptoms caused by the drop in oestrogen brought on by the menopause. This includes alleviating hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, vaginal dryness and itching and irregular periods.
Evorel patches are used as a short-term solution to easing menopausal symptoms and should be reviewed yearly by your doctor. Whilst we offer all four strengths online, you must have already been prescribed Evorel in the past to buy the treatment.
The active ingredient in Evorel is estradiol - also referred to as oestradiol - which is a synthetic and highly effective hormone for the female sex hormone oestrogen. Evorel patches mainly work by supplying the body with oestrogen via the skin to compensate for a loss of this hormone as a result of changes during menopause. As it is a very natural form of oestrogen, it's able to perform functions similar to how the hormones effortlessly produced by the body performed before menopause.
The menopause causes a drop in hormone levels, particularly oestrogen, which can lead to a number of uncomfortable symptoms, in particular night sweats, vaginal dryness, loss of bone mass and changes in your sex drive. Evorel contains natural oestrogen, so combats these symptoms by compensating for this significant drop in oestrogen within the female body. Without these distressing symptoms, women can continue living their life distraction free.
Evorel patches are also low-maintenance and require less remembering. Being a transdermal patch, it means that you won't need to remember to use it everyday, but simply to ensure that you change the patch twice weekly.
Many women have found that the Evorel patches are extremely flexible in strength, allowing you to pick the right dosage to suit you.
The Evorel patch is a small square-shaped transparent patch of just 0.2mm thick that is applied to the skin. Every packet of medication will contain a patient leaflet to be read before starting, but here are the guidelines to using Evorel patches:
If your patch falls off, you should always apply a new one, but still change on the original day. If you forget to change your patch, just put on a new one as soon as you remember.
At HealthExpress, we offer Evorel patches in four dosage strengths; 25mcg, 50mcg, 75mcg and 100mcg. The doctor will usually recommend a smaller dose first of all with the opportunity to increase it if it isn't effective.
As Evorel is a patch treatment, it is unlikely to cause gastrointestinal side effects as it is not ingested, but the most expected side effects include:
Whilst all side effects associated with Evorel are uncommon, some other adverse effects include:
These side effects may go away as your body adjusts to the treatment, but it's important to tell your doctor of any side effects, if you experience any, when you go for your check-ups. If you experience any more serious side effects it's important to speak to a medical professional as soon as possible.
Most women who are experiencing menopause symptoms can buy and use Evorel if their doctor has recommended it to them. Women who haven't had a hysterectomy will most likely to be prescribed Evorel Conti and Sequi. After a hysterectomy, taking normal Evorel with just estradiol should be sufficient.
Other possible prevention causes include:
