Frequently Asked Questions

What is Evra? 

Evra is a combined hormonal contraceptive (CHC) considered to be one of the most efficient reversible methods of contraception. It comes in the form of a patch that releases hormones to prevent the user from getting pregnant. 

A patch contraceptive is more than 99 per cent effective in preventing pregnancy when used correctly. However, it does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV.

Who can use the Evra patch? 

Before using the Evra patch, consult with your doctor and inform them of your and your family’s medical history. Tell them about your illnesses, operations that you may have had, and the medicines you are taking. 

If you have the following conditions, you may not be suitable to use the patch:

  • Pregnant or you think may be pregnant
  • Breastfeeding a baby less than 6 weeks old
  • Smoker and is 35 years of age or above
  • 35 years old or above and stopped smoking less than a year ago
  • Overweight
  • Taking certain medicines, such as some antibiotics, St John’s Wort, or medicines used to treat epilepsytuberculosis (TB) or HIV

You may also not be able to use the patch if you have or have had:

  • blood clots in a vein or artery (or an immediate family member had a blood clot before they were 45)
  • a heart problem or a disease affecting your blood circulatory system (including high blood pressure)
  • lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus)
  • breast cancer
  • migraine with aura (warning signs)
  • a disease of the liver or gallbladder
  • diabetes with complications

How does Evra patch work? 

Evra is called a combined hormonal contraceptive because it contains two types of sex hormones: a progestogen (norelgestromin) and an oestrogen (Ethinyl estradiol), that prevents the release of an egg (ovulation) each month. It also works by thickening the cervical mucus to prevent the sperm from entering the cervix, and by thinning the lining of the womb to prevent a fertilized egg.

How do I use an Evra patch? 

Contraception patch Evra can only be taken with a valid prescription from a doctor. Make sure to always follow the doctor’s advice and read the available patient information leaflet that comes inside the medicine. Patch contraceptives may not be suitable for all women. 

Evra comes in a form of a sticky patch that you apply to the skin. Open the packet with your clean hands and remove the clear plastic from the patch. Apply the patch firmly into the skin. You can place it on either the abdomen/ stomach, buttocks, upper back, or your outside upper arm. Do not apply it on irritated skin, areas where it may be removed by your clothing, or on your breasts. Leave it for 7 days and then change into a new patch (on day 8). Repeat for 3 weeks and then have a 7- day break without a patch. You will still have contraceptive protection during the 7-day period. 

Use only one patch at a time. Do not alter or cut them in any way. Do not use the same patch for more than 7 days. Do not also put cream or lotion over the area. It is recommended to apply the patch in a different spot from the previous one to avoid irritation.

Want To Know More About Evra patch?

You can start using the Evra contraception patch on the first day of your menstrual period provided you are not using hormonal contraception currently or during the previous month or switching from an oral contraceptive. If used after the first day of your period, additional contraceptive (non-hormonal) such as condoms should be used for the first 7 days. 

Patch contraception works during normal activities like bathing, showering, swimming, sauna, and exercising. Always check the patch to ensure it has not fallen off. 

Those who have just given birth, had an abortion or miscarriage are advised to check with your doctor about using Evra patch. 

Each 20 cm2 EVRA transdermal patch contains 6 mg norelgestromin (NGMN) and 600 micrograms ethinyl estradiol (EE).

The patch contraceptive has a very small risk of serious side effects, but you should discuss the risks with a GP or nurse before applying the patch.

Serious side effects include blood clots and cancer. 

The more common side effects that occur during the start of usage are headaches, sickness (nausea), breast tenderness and mood changes. These temporary symptoms usually go away after a few months. 

Bleeding and spotting between periods can be quite common in the first few cycles of using the patch. As long as you are using the patch properly, you will still get contraceptive protection against pregnancy. 

Since the patch contraceptive is not absorbed by the stomach, it will still work even if you are feeling sick (vomiting) or have diarrhoea.

Some forms of medicine can also make the contraceptive patch less effective. See a doctor or a pharmacist for medical guidance.
