A Guide to Evorel Conti Patches

An Introduction to Evorel Conti:

Every  Evorel Conti consists of two major ingredients, that include Estradiol and norethisterone. These two main ingredients are types of the primary sex hormone; progesterone and oestrogen. Norethisterone is a synthetic version of progesterone, and estradiol is a naturally occurring form of oestrogen.

What are these patches used for?

Hormone replacement therapy helps you to fight the menopausal symptoms. Evorel Conti patches can be used as a former alternative for osteoporosis prevention in postmenopausal who are at higher risk of injuries and are unable to take other osteoporosis-prevention medicines.

How do these patches work?

Two major components:

Evorel Conti patches are a treatment for hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Estradiol and norethisterone are the two major components in each patch. They are the primary female sex hormones, oestrogen and progesterone, in different ways. Norethisterone is a synthetic version of progesterone and estradiol is a naturally occurring form of oestrogen.

Oetrogen deficiency:

In the years leading up to menopause, the ovaries contain less and less oestrogen, and oestrogen blood levels fall as a result. Oestrogen deficiency may result in unpleasant symptoms including irregular cycles, hot flushes, night sweats, mood fluctuations, and vaginal dryness or discomfort.

Oestrogen should be taken as a medication to replace the body’s declining levels to alleviate the unpleasant effects of menopause. Hormone replacement therapy is the term for this (HRT). HRT is normally only needed for short-term relief of menopausal symptoms, and its use should be discussed with your doctor at least once a year.

Women without hysterectomy:

For females without hysterectomy, a progestogen is needed as part of HRT. This is because oestrogen promotes the development of the womb lining (endometrium) in people with an intact womb, and can contribute to endometrial cancer if the development is unchecked. A progestogen is given to counteract the effects of oestrogen on the womb lining and reduce the chance of cancer, but it does not entirely remove it. This is referred to as joint HRT.

Combined form of HRT:

Evorel Conti patches are a form of combined HRT that lasts for a long time. Without fail, one patch is worn at all times. Both estradiol and norethisterone are present in each Evorel Conti pad, ensuring that both hormones are delivered every day. The patches are intended to be updated twice a week to release the hormones at a steady pace across the skin into the bloodstream.There is no monthly bleed for this sort of HRT. It’s about ladies who haven’t had their cycles in a long time.

Fighting osteoporosis:

In postmenopausal women, HRT is also used to combat osteoporosis. The decrease in oestrogen levels during menopause can damage the bones, making them weaker and more vulnerable to cracking. Oestrogen supplements can help women avoid bone weakening and fractures in the years after menopause.

Who can not use Evorel Conti patches?

  • Women with breast cancer or with a family history of the disease.
  • Women with cancer, whether confirmed or suspected, whose development is induced by oestrogen, such as cancer of the womb lining (endometrial cancer).
  • Women that have an unresolved womb lining overgrowth (endometrial hyperplasia).
  • Women who are experiencing menstrual bleeding for which the cause is unknown.
  • Women that have a blood clot in a leg vein or in the lungs (deep vein thrombosis) (pulmonary embolism).
  • Infection of a vein affected by a blood clot in women (thrombophlebitis).
  • Women who also had a blood clot-related stroke lately.
  • Female who have had a cardiac arrest lately.
  • Women who are suffering from angina pectoris.
  • Women who have acute liver disease, such as hepatitis or liver cancer, or who have had liver disease in the past and whose liver function has not returned to normal.
  • Porphyrias are genetic blood diseases that affect women.
