The most important part of using hormone replacement therapies is to avoid any gaps. Buying Evorel Sequi patches online from EveAdam means you need never run out again, with your treatment arriving every month. So no more queues at the pharmacy for your prescription, or trying to get through to reception at the doctor’s surgery.
It’s a mixture of two hormones. But more on that later. Evorel HRT Sequi patches are a prescription treatment for women going through the menopause. A hormone replacement therapy, it treats symptoms that occur during what some people call “the change” by, you’ve guessed it, replacing hormones. Evorel patches are placed on the skin for a set number of days, before being replaced with a new one, just like a stop smoking patch … only it weans you back on, not off.
No, you’ll need a prescription to get Evorel HRT patches in the UK. HRT treatments can have side effects, and certain products may not be suitable for you if you have an existing health condition, or if you’re currently taking other medications, for example. So you’ll need to have a consultation with a clinician first to assess if Evorel Sequi is safe for you to use.
There are a few advantages to buying Evorel Sequi online. Firstly, it’s convenient. All you need to do is fill in our online questionnaire and one of our UK registered clinicians will offer the most suitable treatments for your symptoms and condition. The subscription service means your treatment is sent monthly or every three, six or nine months. Your first package is sent to your door the next working day, in discreet packaging.
And that’s it.
Evorel Sequi patches contain two active ingredients, which are estradiol hemihydrate and norethisterone acetate. Estradiol is a synthetic version of the hormone oestrogen, while norethisterone is a synthetic version of the hormone progesterone. They’re also used together in the contraceptive pill under the name combined pill, which refers to the combination of the two ingredients.
Each pack of Evorel Sequi comes with two forms of the treatment. Evorel 50 patches contain a different dosage of hormones compared to the second half of the treatment, Evorel Conti.
Both Sequi and Conti contain the same two hormones, and Everol Conti makes up half the treatment in Sequi. So why the difference?
Sequi is a sequential HRT patch while Conti is a continuous treatment. But what does that mean? We hear you. Put simply, sequential HRT patches contain different levels of the hormones that are taken in a specific order, while continuous patches are all of the same dose.
These aren’t designed that way to confuse you. Sequential HRT patches are prescribed to women who are still going through the menopause and experience some bleeding. Once bleeding stops, you can move onto a continuous HRT patch, like Conti.
HRT patches are designed to be discreet. Measuring 16 square centimeters, they are easily hidden under clothing, usually on the bottom half of the body (but more on that later). They essentially look like small plasters and are just as thin, meaning they are unlikely to show through your clothing.
You can. Subscribe to EveAdam and you can get your treatment at intervals to suit you, whether that’s monthly or every three, six or nine months. For prescription medications, our UK registered clinicians can make sure that the products offered are the most suitable for you. All you have to do then is choose one after filling in the online questionnaire and it’ll arrive the next working day.
There isn’t a best place specifically to put an Evorel patch, and it’s important to not use the same area of skin for consecutive patches. It should be placed on a hairless part of the body, below the waistline. Usually, this means on the top of the leg or buttocks.
It should never be placed on the breasts or over broken skin. It’s also important to not place it over an area that you’ve applied cream or talc to and never under an area where you might wear elastic, such as the waist.
At the beginning of treatment with Evorel Sequi you’ll use the Evorel 50 patch. You can start to use this at any time if you have not used any HRT treatment previously, or if you have no menstrual bleeding. If you still have your period, you should use it within five days of the start of bleeding. If you’re using another type of HRT, its type will determine when in your cycle you should start using Evorel Sequi patches.
This will depend on where in your menstrual cycle you are. For week one and two you should use the Evorel 50 patch. For weeks three and four you should swap to the Everol Conti patch. There should be no break between the two types of patches.
Each patch needs to be changed twice a week, so you’ll use a total of four Everol 50 patches and four Everol Conti patches each month. There is a strict schedule of when to change each patch. For example, if you use the first patch on a Monday, it’ll need to be changed on Thursday, and then on the following Monday.
Monday - Thursday - Monday
Tuesday - Friday - Tuesday
Wednesday - Saturday - Wednesday
Thursday - Sunday - Thursday
Friday - Monday - Friday
Saturday - Tuesday - Saturday
Sunday - Wednesday - Sunday
To help you keep track, each patch allows you to write the days on it.
Removing the patch is easy. Just peel it off and fold it over so the sticky side attaches to itself. This prevents any remaining hormones from being picked up by children or pets.
Always throw the patch away, and don’t flush it down the toilet. After the patch has been removed it might leave some glue on the skin. This will fall off over time, or you can remove it with soap and water or baby oil.
On occasion, the patch you’re using might come off. If this happens, replace it with a patch of the same type and remove it when the previous patch was due to be replaced. It’s for this reason that it’s recommended that you always keep a spare pack of HRT patches in reserve.
If you forget to change the patch on its due date, just change it as soon as you remember and stick to the original schedule. This may mean you’ll experience some bleeding like you would during your period.
The most common side effect is a rash where the patch has been placed, and this affects around one in ten women.
Other common side effects (affecting less than one in ten patients) include depression, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, an upset stomach, aches and pains, weight gain, heavy or painful periods and water retention.
If you experience any symptoms of the following, you should contact your clinician immediately: breast cancer, endometrial cancer or hyperplasia, ovarian cancer, blood clots and strokes, and heart disease.
Memory loss has also been reported in women over the age of 65. If you have any concerns about memory loss whilst taking Evorel Sequi, let your clinician know.
Most allergic reactions occur on the skin where the patch is placed and are not serious. In rare cases, there might be a more serious reaction, which will need immediate medical attention. Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction include a sudden swelling of the face, mouth, throat and tongue, difficulties breathing, and severe rashes or hives.
Evorel Conti patches form part of the treatment with Evorel Sequi. But they’re also used as a standalone treatment for women who no longer have their period, as opposed to Sequi, which is used during the perimenopause (as you’re going through the hormonal changes).
Oestrogen only HRT is only prescribed if you have had a hysterectomy (your womb removed). This is because without the other hormone, progesterone, your risk of womb cancer is increased.
Alternatives to the patch include tablets, gels and implants. Tablets, such as Kliofem, are as common as patches and more suitable for women that have skin reactions to patches. Gels are also available, such as Sandrena. You may find that they’re a more discreet way of introducing the hormones to the body than the patch.
There are many Everol Sequi alternatives available and your prescribing clinician will be able to discuss these with you after you’ve filled in the online questionnaire.
It’s not exactly groundbreaking, but a healthy lifestyle really can help manage symptoms of the menopause. Changes can be simple, such as a healthy diet and exercise. While this will not prevent symptoms from occurring, it can have a significant, positive effect on some women.
Most of the alternative therapies for HRT not only don’t work, they can also interact with other medications and cause health issues. If you’re thinking about using an alternative treatment, ask your clinician for their advice to be clear on whether it presents any health risks.
Before using Evorel Sequi, you should always make sure that you read the patient information leaflet that comes with your treatment.
If anything is unclear, or if you have any questions, let our clinician know via your EveAdam account. They should be able to help.
There are some treatments that might make use of Evorel Sequi unsuitable, so it’s important to tell your prescribing clinician about any conditions you have or are prone to.
You should not use Evorel Sequi if you experience any of the following: allergies to any of its ingredients, breast cancer, any cancers made worse by use of the hormones it contains, endometrial hyperplasia, unexplained vaginal bleeding, blood clots, blocked arteries or porphyria.
Your doctor or pharmacist will also need to know about other treatments you’re taking, as Everol Sequi can interact with some substances in a way that can present a significant health risk.
These include treatments for epilepsy, HIV, hepatitis C, bosentan and St John’s wort.
