Femseven Sequi (Estradiol/Levonorgestrel) Patches 12 is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) used to relieve symptoms of menopause. It contains two female hormones an Oestrogen-Estradiol and a Progestogen-Levonorgestrel. Estradiol is a naturally forming oestrogen and Levonorgestrel is a synthetic form of progesterone. FemSeven sequi is a sequential form of combined HRT, which means that oestrogen is used on a continuous basis and the progestogen is added for the last two weeks of every monthly cycle. It is more suitable for women who are still having irregular periods, because it usually results in a monthly bleed. The patches release the hormones through the skin into the bloodstream at a constant rate and are designed to be changed once a week. The oestrogen-only phase one patches are used in the first two weeks and the oestrogen plus progestogen phase two patches are used in the second two weeks of each monthly cycle. A menstrual bleed usually occurs each month, towards the end of the phase two patches
