About Evorel Conti
Evorel Conti patches are classed as a hormone replacement therapy (HRT). It contains estradiol and norethisterone, which act in the same way as the female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone. Evorel Conti patches are used in postmenopausal women who have not had a period in the last 18 months.
If only oestrogen levels are increased during HRT treatment, the endometrium would grow excessively, causing an increased risk of endometrial cancer. This is why you will be prescribed Evorel Conti patches (which contains a progestogen) if you have not had a hysterectomy.
Evorel Conti helps to treat menopausal symptoms such as:
- Hot flushes, night sweats
- Depression, mood swings
- Sleep problems
- Vaginal dryness
Now Patient offers Evorel Conti patches as a treatment for HRT only, following an online consultation with a prescribing clinician.
