Evorel patch is an effective hormone replacement therapy treatment (HRT) that helps to alleviate menopausal symptoms in women. Using oestrogen only, this HRT administers hormones into the skin and works as a hormone supplement to help restore low oestrogen levels which drop during the menopause.
Evorel patches use estradiol, which is a natural form of oestrogen. Each patch should be changed twice weekly. When used correctly, this HRT helps to reduce severe symptoms such as vaginal dryness, night sweats, hot flushes, mood swings, and osteoporosis (loss of bone density). Each Evorel patch comes in different sizes equivalent to the different strengths that this HRT is available in. Evorel patches are generally prescribed to women who have had a hysterectomy.

Evorel Frequently Asked Questions
Evorel patches help to restore hormone levels by alleviating menopausal symptoms, by supplying the body with large doses of natural oestrogen in the form of estradiol. During the menopause the level of oestrogen significantly drops causing a number of symptoms such as vaginal dryness, mood swings and hot flushes to occur. By working as an oestrogen supplement, Evorel reduces the severity of these symptoms. In comparison to oral HRT treatments, using Evorel patches reduces your risk of experiencing gastrointestinal side effects.
As Evorel is in the form of a patch, it works by administrating oestrogen into the body via the skin to replenish the oestrogen that is lost during menopause. Each Evorel patch uses a natural oestrogen in the form of estradiol, therefore effectively mimicking the hormone that is naturally produced in her body.
One Evorel patch should be applied to an area of skin that is clean and dry, with areas like the waist, thigh or bottom as recommended patch areas. It is essential, however, that an Evorel patch is not placed on or near the breast area. Unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor, Evorel patch should be changed twice weekly. If you forget to change your patch it is important that you change it as soon as you remember, making sure to keep to your patch days.
Each Evorel patch contains estradiol and comes in four different sizes according to its dosage. This means that Evorel 25 releases 25mg, Evorel 50 releases 50mg, and Evorel 100 releases 100mg. Evorel 50 is usually prescribed as the starting HRT dose for the treatment of menopause symptoms.
Evorel is suitable for women who are experiencing symptoms of the menopause, and have previously been prescribed this HRT by their doctor. Women who have had a hysterectomy and no longer have a uterus are suitable for Evorel. As Evorel is an oestrogen-only HRT, women who have not had a hysterectomy will instead usually be prescribed Evorel Sequi or Evorel Conti, both of which contain progestogen.
Like all prescription medications, you may experience some side effects while using Evorel, however, these should subside when your body gets used to the treatment. Common side effects with Evorel include migraines, headaches and irritation to the areas where the patch has been applied. If you experience any side effects that become frequent or severe then it is advised that you have regular checks while on this medication.
