Pregnancy can result from sexual intercourse but there are many contraceptive methods available to prevent conception. Evra is a contraceptive patch (or ‘The Patch’) which contains artificial progestogen and oestrogen ingredients. The combined hormonal contraceptive works by preventing ovulation, thickening the mucus in the neck of the womb to make it harder for sperm to reach the egg and it thins the lining of the womb to lessen the chance of a fertilised egg being able to implant. Simply applying a new Evra patch every week (for 3 weeks, then 1 week off) will give you 99% effective protection from unwanted pregnancy.

Evra Patch Reviews

“I was on the Ortho Evra contraceptive patch for a couple years and after the first 3 months of your body adjusting to it, (which you are forewarned about) just regular side effects, mood swings, regular cramps (when your time is almost near) and I believe it gave me a high sex drive. I’ve been off of it for about 5 months and my sex drive plummeted dramatically. It’s extremely convenient due to my forgetting to take the pill every day. I usually put it on my pelvis and rotate sides each week.”

Evra Patch Hormones
Evra Patch Hormones consist of two hormones, a progestin and an estrogen. Both of these Evra Patch Hormones combined to prevent pregnancy, hence the combined pill name.
Estrogen is a group of a sex hormones that promote the development and maintenance of the female characteristics in the human body. These include areas such as breasts, pubic/armpit hair and regulation of the menstrual cycle.
A progestin is a hormone that plays a role in the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. It helps reduce the amount of stretchiness the cervical mucus has, making it less friendly towards sperm.

Evra Patch Alternatives
My Pharmacy offers many other Evra Patch alternatives and contraceptive methods. Some of these Evra Patch Alternatives include –
The combined oral contraceptive pill is usually just called “the pill”. It contains the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries.
The Combined pill is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.
The usual way to take the pill is to take one every day for 21 days, then stop for seven days, and during this week you have a period-type bleed. You start taking the pill again after seven days.
You need to take the pill at around the same time every day. You could get pregnant if you don’t do this, or if you miss a pill, or vomit or have severe diarrhoea.
Some medicines may make the pill less effective. Check with your doctor if you’re taking any other tablets.
If you have heavy periods or painful periods, PMS (premenstrual syndrome) or endometriosis the combined pill may help.
The pill does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), so using a condom as well will help to protect you against STIs.
How the combined pill works
1) prevents the ovaries from releasing an egg each month (ovulation).
2)thickens the mucus in the neck of the womb, so it is harder for sperm to penetrate the womb and reach an egg
3)thins the lining of the womb, so there is less chance of a fertilised egg implanting into the womb and being able to grow
There are many different brands of pill, made up of three main types:
Monophasic 21-day pills
This is the most common type. Each pill has the same amount of hormone in it. One pill is taken each day for 21 days and then no pills are taken for the next seven days. Microgynon, Marvelon, Yasmin and Cilest are examples of this type of pill.
Phasic 21-day pills
Phasic pills contain two or three sections of different coloured pills in a pack. Each section contains a different amount of hormones. One pill is taken each day for 21 days and then no pills are taken for the next seven days. Phasic pills need to be taken in the right order. Logynon is an example of this type of pill.
Every day (ED) pills
There are 21 active pills and seven inactive (dummy) pills in a pack. The two types of pill look different. One pill is taken each day for 28 days with no break between packets of pills. Every day pills need to be taken in the right order. Microgynon ED is an example of this type of pill.
Follow the instructions that come with your packet. If you have any questions, ask your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist.
What to do if you miss a pill
If you continue to be sick, keep using another form of contraception until you’ve taken the pill again for seven days without vomiting.
Who can use the combined pill
If there are no medical reasons why you cannot take the pill, and you don’t smoke, you can take the pill until your menopause. However, the pill is not suitable for all women. To find out whether the pill is right for you, talk to your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist.
You should not take the pill if you:
smoke and are 35 or older
stopped smoking less than a year ago and are 35 or older
are very overweight
take certain medicines (ask your GP or a health professional at a contraception clinic about this)
You should also not take the pill if you have (or have had):
thrombosis (a blood clot) in a vein, for example in your leg or lungs
stroke or any other disease that narrows the arteries
anyone in your close family having a blood clot under the age of 45
a heart abnormality or heart disease, including high blood pressure
severe migraines, especially with aura (warning symptoms)
disease of the gallbladder or liver
diabetes with complications or diabetes for the past 20 years
Risks of taking the combined pill
There are some risks associated with using the combined contraceptive pill. However, these risks are small and, for most women, the benefits of the pill outweigh the risks.
The oestrogen in the pill may cause your blood to clot more readily. If a blood clot develops, it could cause:
deep vein thrombosis (clot in your leg)
pulmonary embolus (clot in your lung)
The risk of getting a blood clot is very small, but your doctor will check if you have certain risk factors that before prescribing the pill.
The pill can be taken with caution if you have one of the risk factors below. It is unlikely you would be advised to take it if you have two or more risk factors.
being 35 years old or over
being a smoker or having quit smoking in the past year
being very overweight (in women with a BMI of 35 or over, the risks of using the pill usually outweigh the benefits)
having migraines (you should not take the pill if you have severe or regular migraine attacks, especially if you get aura or a warning sign before an attack)
having high blood pressure
having had a blood clot or stroke in the past
having a close relative who had a blood clot when they were younger than 45
being immobile for a long time – for example, in a wheelchair or with a leg in plaster
Research is ongoing into the link between breast cancer and the pill. Research suggests that users of all types of hormonal contraception have a slightly higher chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer compared with women who do not use them. However, 10 years after you stop taking the pill, your risk of breast cancer goes back to normal.
Research has also suggested a link between the pill and the risk of developing cervical cancer and a rare form of liver cancer. However, the pill does offer some protection against developing womb (endometrial) cancer, ovarian cancer and colon cancer.
Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. If you get
any side effect, particularly if severe and persistent, or have any change to your health that you think
may be due to EVRA, please talk to your doctor.

contraceptives please see section 2 “What you need to know before you use EVRA”.
