Evra Transdermal Contraceptive Patch is a weekly birth control that is a convenient option for the woman on the go. It is the only once-a-week birth control patch. It's as effective as the Pill, and stays put, whether you're running errands or running late for class. Life is complicated; your weekly birth control may make life a little easier. Evra contains two types of hormones, norelgestromin and ethinyl estradiol. Because it contains two hormones, Evra is called a combined hormonal contraceptive'.

Evra Transdermal Contraceptive Patch:Life is complicated, but the Patch is weekly birth control that may make life a little easier. Evra, the only once-a-week birth control patch, offers the same efficacy as the Pill and is convenient to use. To prevent pregnancy, the Patch is worn on the skin for 1 week and replaced on the same day of the week for 3 consecutive weeks, with the fourth week "patch-free."

What is the Patch?

The Patch is birth control you only have to put on once a week. It's as effective as the Pill, and stays put no matter where your week takes you. The Patch is worn on the skin, using transdermal technology.

How Does it Work?

The Patch is worn on the body, preventing pregnancy by delivering continuous levels of hormones (progestin and estrogen, respectively) into the bloodstream through the skin. Following this process, the Patch works the same way that pills do: by preventing ovulation. This means that the ovary does not release an egg to be fertilized. It also thickens the cervical mucus, which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the uterus, and it changes the endometrium, which is the mucus membrane that lines the uterus, to reduce the chance of implantation.

Evra Transdermal Contraceptive Patch: Always use EVRA exactly as described in this leaflet.

  • If you do not, you may increase your risk of getting pregnant
  • Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure
  • Always keep non-hormonal contraceptives (such as condoms, foam or sponge) as a back-up in case you make a mistake when using the patch.

How many patches to use:

  • Weeks 1, 2 & 3: Put on one patch and leave it on for exactly seven days
  • Week 4: Do not put on a patch this week.

Important information to follow when using the patch

  • Change EVRA on the same day of each week. This is because it is designed to work over 7 days
  • Never go without wearing a patch for more than 7 days in a row
  • Only wear one patch at a time
  • Do not put the patch on skin that is red, irritated or cut
  • To work properly the patch must stick firmly to your skin

My wife is using that product 2 years already. It is very easy to use and complications free. Patches are water resistent and there are not any problem to stay attached for 1 week even in active persons. Regular and painless menstruation period. In 2 years period there are no side effects, including weight gain.In general the product is one of the best modern choices about contraception.
