Buy Evorel Conti Patches Online in the UK
Evorel Conti (Estradiol/Norethisterone) Patch is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). It contains two female hormones an Oestrogen-Estradiol and a Progestogen-Norethisterone. It is used for the symptoms of menopause for women who have not had a period (menstrual bleed) for at least 18 months.
Evorel Conti is a transdermal patch that contains 170mg of nortestrenol acetate and 50mg of estradiol every 24 hours. The medication Evorel Conti is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Oestrogen and progesterone, two different forms of female hormones, are present.
To help you remember when to change your patches, Evorel Conti is sold in a pack. Eight patches are included in each box.
In each patch, the hormones are spread evenly. The skin allows the medication to enter your body slowly.
The amount of oestrogen generated by a woman's body decreases throughout menopause. Hot flushes, or facial, neck, and chest heat, can result from this. Following menopause, Evorel Conti relieves these symptoms. Evorel Conti will only be provided if your symptoms significantly interfere with your daily life.
Women who have been post-menopausal for six months are eligible. Although your doctor will advise you, this is typically considered to be 18 months following the previous period (menstrual bleed).
The term "continuous combination" HRT refers to Evorel Conti. This is due to the patch's constant delivery of both hormones.
Evorel Conti patches replace the oestrogen that the ovaries typically release. However, taking an oestrogen hormone on a daily basis in women who still have their womb may cause the lining of your womb to thicken and accumulate.
- This indicates that a progestogen hormone must be added to oestrogen.
- This aids in shedding the womb's lining and prevents any issues.
Because of this, progesterone is also present in Evorel Conti patches.
With Evorel Conti, most women do not experience a normal monthly cycle. However, bleeding or spotting frequently happens during the first few months of treatment until things get under control.
Evorel Conti is not a contraceptive. You might still need supplementary contraception to avoid conception if it has been less than 12 months since your last period or if you are under 50 years old. Ask your doctor for suggestions.
Always use this medicine exactly as instructed by your doctor. Please read the patient information leaflet before use.
