Evorel comes in the form of patches that are used for hormone replacement therapy. These patches contain varying amounts of estrogen. They are usually prescribed to women who have had a hysterectomy.
The menopause is an entirely natural phase in a woman's life that typically occurs between the age of 45 and 50. During this time the ovaries stop producing hormones, and this can lead to a number of symptoms including irregular periods (which will eventually stop completely), fatigue, sweats and hot flashes. Hormone replacement therapy can help with the symptoms of the menopause by providing synthetic hormones designed to replace the body's diminishing estrogen and progesterone levels.
HRT is a very commonly prescribed drug and is well tolerated, but there can be side effects. It can cause bloating, breast tenderness or swelling, nausea, leg cramps, headaches, indigestion and vaginal bleeding, but most of these will only be temporary. Most experts agree that taking HRT drugs, such as Elleste, Evorel, Kliovance, Livial and Premarin, for 5 years or less poses little or no risk. To get your prescription, you can have a free consultation with a GMC registered doctor at UK Meds.
