Evra patches are contraceptive patches that are a convenient, yet effective alternative to conventional oral contraceptives like 'the pill'. The contraceptive patch can effectively stop you from falling pregnant by supplying your body with two contraceptive hormones, which work together to prevent pregnancy.
Evra (Ortho Evra) is a transdermal contraceptive patch that women can buy online to successfully stop the occurrence of pregnancy. This 5cm x 5cm contraceptive patch is placed on your skin and contains the active ingredients ethinylestradiol and norelgestromin. You can order the Evra contraceptive patch in the recommended dosage of 203mcg / 34mcg / 24hrs and it should be used for a duration of 21 days.
Evra (Ortho Evra) contraceptive patches provide over 99% effective contraceptive cover, which means that you don't have to take buy additional methods of contraception to prevent pregnancy before having sex. You also don't have to remember to use these contraceptive patches every day, as Evra only needs to be changed once a week. These contraceptive patches won't interrupt your daily routine as they are only changed once a week.
Evra (Ortho Evra) patches work in the same way as combined contraceptives, but instead of the hormones being ingested, they're passed into your system through your skin. The combination of the synthetic ethinylestradiol and norelgestromin - which are artificial versions of oestrogen and progestogen, respectively - influence your body's natural cycle, so that you stop ovulating.
These birth control patches also increase the thickness of cervical mucous so that sperm can't enter the womb and stops the womb lining from thickening, so that a fertilised egg can't attach itself and grow.
Most women between the ages of 18 and 45 can buy Evra contraceptive patches online without having to worry about negative affects, but it's important that you mention in your online consultation with our partner doctor if you are currently using any medications or have underlying health problems, as this may influence your suitability to safely use these contraceptive patches.
Certain medications can speed up the breakdown of hormones, making the patch less effective. Using the patch can also raise your blood levels if you're taking certain medications, which can increase the risk of side effects. You should tell a doctor if you're using any medication for this reason.
You shouldn't buy Evra patches if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or if you are allergic to the ingredients. If you have a history of thrombosis, high blood pressure, have had a heart attack, experience migraines or have high cholesterol, it's best not to use these contraceptive patches.
You use Evra patches for three weeks of your four-week (28-day) cycle, which means that you'll have a seven-day break every three weeks. You'll be completely protected for those seven days, if you used the patch correctly for the first part of your cycle.
If you start using your first patch on the first day of your menstrual cycle, you'll have complete protection straight away. The day you use your first patch will be your 'Patch Change Day', mark this on a calendar if you're afraid that you'll forget it.
Choose a spot for the patch on your buttocks, upper arms, upper back or abdomen, as these are places where it's unlikely to be rubbed off by tight clothing. Make sure that your skin is clean and dry before you secure the patch.
The Evra patch shouldn't be influenced by your everyday activities, even bathing, showering or swimming, but if it does become loose at the edges, simply press it down. After you've worn the patch for seven days, you must remove it and replace it immediately. When replacing the patch, position it on a different area of skin to avoid skin irritation.
Side effects are unusual with this birth control medication, but if they do occur they are normally very mild and will pass as soon as your body becomes used to the contraceptive hormones. The most common side effects can include headaches, nausea, tiredness, moodiness, breast tenderness or stomach pain and bloating.
The dose of oestrogen in each patch is higher than other contraceptives, so you are more likely to develop oestrogen-related side effects like water retention and headaches. This birth control method can also cause swelling, increased fat levels in the blood, uncontrollable emotions, anxiety, insomnia, reduced libido and vaginal bleeding or dryness, though these are uncommon.
This contraception can cause the following rare side effects, which very few women experience: abnormal crying or emotion, inflammation of the gall bladder, hives and increased cholesterol levels. In very rare cases, this birth control patch can cause aggression. If you experience anything more serious or prolonged, speak to your doctor straight away.
