      The truth about bioidentical HRT for menopause

      How do Evorel patches work?

      Ovaries gradually produce less and less oestrogen in the period up to the menopause, and oestrogen blood levels decline as a result. The declining levels of oestrogen can cause distressing symptoms, such as irregular periods, hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings and vaginal dryness or itching.

      Oestrogen can be given as a supplement to replace the falling levels in the body and help reduce these distressing symptoms of the menopause. This is known as hormone replacement therapy (HRT). HRT is usually only required for short-term relief from menopausal symptoms and its use should be reviewed at least once a year with your doctor.

      HRT is also sometimes used to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. The declining level of oestrogen at menopause can affect the bones, causing them to become thinner and more prone to breaking. Oestrogen supplements help prevent bone loss and fractures that may occur in women in the years after menopause.

      Evorel patches are a continuous, oestrogen-only form of HRT. They release estradiol through the skin into the bloodstream at a constant rate and are designed to be changed twice a week.

      How do I use Evorel patches?

      ▪️ One Evorel patch should be applied twice each week to a clean, dry, unbroken, non-irritated area of skin below the waist, on the lower back or buttocks.

      ▪️ The patch should be worn continuously for three to four days and then replaced. For example, you could change your patch every Monday and Thursday. Each fresh patch should be applied to a slightly different area to avoid irritating the skin. Leave at least a week before applying a patch to the same site. Write the day you need to change your patch on the medication box or mark on your calendar to help you remember when to change the patch.

      ▪️ Don't apply powders, creams, lotions or other oily products before applying a patch as they will stop it sticking.

      ▪️ Patches should NOT be applied on or near the breasts, or under waistbands. They should not be exposed to sunlight.

      ▪️ You can shower and bath without removing the patch. If a patch falls off before you are due to change it, for example because you have been doing vigorous exercise, sweating excessively, or wearing clothes that rub the patch, you should replace it with a new one. If a patch falls off in the bath, wait for your skin to cool down before applying a new one. Change the new patch on your normal patch change day.

      ▪️ If you forget to change your patch on your usual day, change it as soon as you remember. Then carry on as before with your usual patch change days.

          Important information about Evorel patches

          ▪️ Evorel patches will not usually cause a monthly bleed, unless you are also prescribed progestogen tablets to take for the last few days of each month. However, you may experience spotting or breakthrough bleeding during the first few months of treatment. Spotting or breakthrough bleeding is more likely if you forget to change a patch on schedule. If any bleeding continues after a few months of using the medicine, or after stopping treatment, you should consult your doctor.

          ▪️ Women using any form of HRT should have regular medical and gynaecological check-ups. Your need for continued HRT should be reviewed with your doctor at least once a year.

          ▪️ It is important to be aware that all women using HRT have an increased risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer compared with women who don't use HRT. This risk needs to be weighed against the personal benefits to you of taking HRT. You should discuss these with your doctor before starting HRT. Women on HRT should have regular breast examinations and mammograms.

          ▪️ It is important to be aware that women using HRT have a slightly increased risk of stroke and of blood clots forming in the veins for example deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism compared with women who don't use HRT. The risk is higher if you have existing risk factors such as personal or family history of blood clots, smoking, obesity, certain blood disorders and needs to be weighed against the personal benefits to you of taking HRT.

          ▪️ The risk of blood clots forming in the veins (thromboembolism) while using HRT may be temporarily increased if you experience major trauma, have surgery, or are immobile for prolonged periods of time (this includes travelling for over three hours). For this reason, your doctor may recommend that you stop using HRT for a period of time (usually four to six weeks) prior to any planned surgery, particularly abdominal surgery or orthopaedic surgery on the lower limbs, or if you are to be immobile for long periods. The risk of blood clots during long journeys may be reduced by appropriate exercise during the journey and possibly by wearing elastic hosiery.

          ▪️ Stop using this medicine and inform your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms: stabbing pains or swelling in one leg; pain on breathing or coughing; coughing up blood; breathlessness; sudden chest pain; sudden numbness affecting one side or part of the body; fainting; worsening of epilepsy; migraine or severe headaches; visual disturbances; severe abdominal complaints; increased blood pressure; itching of the whole body; yellowing of the skin or eyes (jaundice); or severe depression.

          ▪️ A woman is considered fertile for two years after her last menstrual period if she is under 50, or for one year if over 50. HRT does not provide contraception. If a potentially fertile women is taking HRT but also requires contraception, a non-hormonal method, such as condoms should be used for women over 50.

                              Are HRT patches enough? ›

                              Skin patches may be a better option than tablets if you find it inconvenient to take a tablet every day. Using patches can also help avoid some side effects of HRT, such as indigestion, and unlike tablets, they do not increase your risk of blood clots.

                              How do I know if my HRT is too low? ›

                              "A return of night sweats, flushes, not sleeping and so on is very indicative that your hormones are not quite in balance. I recommend all my patients have a blood test once a year as part of an annual review to see where their oestrogen is at and whether an HRT adjustment is required."

                              Do you gain weight on Evorel HRT patches? ›

                              Many women believe that taking HRT will make them put on weight, but there's no evidence to support this claim.

                              A low dose of HRT hormones is usually prescribed to begin with. If you need to, you can increase your dose at a later stage. Once you've started HRT, it's best to take it for a few months to see if it works well for you. If not, you can try a different type or increase the dose.

                              What is the most effective form of HRT? ›

                              Forms of oestrogen

                              HRT works by replacing oestrogen and this has repeatedly been proven to be the most effective treatment for many menopause symptoms. You will need to use some kind of oestrogen as part of your HRT. Oestrogen can be supplied as a: Tablet.

                              What is the ideal HRT level? ›

                              The aim of oestrogen replacement should be to achieve blood levels, which correspond to those of the early follicular phase in pre-menopausal women. Indeed, blood levels of estradiol associated with the standard dose of HRT (1 mg of oral estradiol or 50 mcg estradiol patch) are between 150-370 pmol/L.

                              How do I know if my estrogen is too high or too low? ›

                              If your doctor suspects that you might have high estrogen, they'll likely order a blood test to check your hormone levels. A trained professional will collect a sample of your blood to be tested in a laboratory. The results will indicate if your estrogen levels are too low or too high.

                              How do I know if I have too much or too little estrogen? ›

                              Many women actually find that they lose weight by using HRT as it shifts the metabolism back into a pre-menopausal metabolic state. Progesterone can sometimes cause fluid retention which can mimic weight gain, but there are alterations that can be made to the regime to minimise this impact.

                              How do Evorel patches make you feel? ›

                              Can you feel better immediately on HRT? ›

                              It may take a few weeks to feel the effects of treatment and there may be some side effects at first.

                              Does vitamin D increase estrogen? ›

                              Genes associated with follicle growth were not significantly altered by vitamin D3. However, it increases expression of genes involved in the estrogen-biosynthesis. Further, estrogen concentrations in porcine granulosa cell-cultured media increased in response to vitamin D3.

                              How do I know if HRT is working? ›
