What is Evorel Conti?
Evorel Conti is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) patch. It is used to relieve symptoms associated with the menopause. It can also be used in women at risk of osteoporosis during the menopause or the years after menopause.
HRT uses oestrogen to replace the lost oestrogen from the menopause. Most HRT products also contain a progestogen.
Evorel Conti patches contain the hormones oestrogen (estradiol) and progestogen (norethisterone) in every patch. Evorel Conti is a type of HRT called a continuous combined HRT preparation.
How does it work?
Estrogen levels drop during the menopause. Due to this drop, some women experience menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, reduced sex drive, mood swings and vaginal dryness.
The menopause is defined as when periods stop and a woman is no longer able to get pregnant naturally. In the time before the final period, the menstrual cycle can become irregular and menstrual periods can become less frequent.
Evorel Conti patches contain the active ingredient estradiol which is an oestrogen. This is absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream. This replaces the oestrogen lost during the menopause and relieves symptoms.
Taking oestrogen increases the risk of womb cancer because oestrogen causes an overgrowth of the endometrium (womb lining). Using a progestogen alongside an oestrogen protects against this increased risk of womb cancer. For that reason, most HRT products such as Evorel Conti contain both an oestrogen and progestogen. Women who have had their womb removed are able to take oestrogen-only HRT.
Evorel Conti alternatives
Other forms of HRT include vaginal creams and gels, vaginal tablets and pessaries, and topical gels. Examples of other HRT patches include Evorel Sequi, Vagifem, Estradot, Elleste Solo, Elleste Duet, Premarin, and Estring.
Various HRT products have suffered from shortages in the past two years. The products can differ slightly, making it hard to find a direct alternative when one is out of stock.
There is no direct alternative to Evorel Conti HRT patches. To achieve a similar dose an oestrogen-only patch (e.g Estradot 50) or gel (e.g Oestrogel) should be used alongside progestogen tablets (e.g Provera tablets).

Evorel Conti Side Effects
There is always a risk of side effects when taking any medicine.
Common side effects when using Evorel Conti patches include:
- Irritated skin where the patch is applied
- Problems sleeping
- Breast tenderness
- Weight gain
These side effects may improve over time when using Evorel patches.
Please read the patient information leaflet for Evorel Conti for a comprehensive list of possible side effects.
HRT can be very beneficial for women with menopause symptoms however, there are risks associated with treatment. The following diseases are reported more often in women taking HRT compared to women not taking HRT:
- Breast cancer
- Blood clots (venous thromboembolism)
- Heart disease
- Endometrial (womb) cancer
- Ovarian cancer
Oestrogen-only HRT has an increased risk of womb cancer but HRT containing progestogens, like Evorel Conti, protects against this risk.
There is evidence to suggest HRT use increases the risk of breast cancer. The risk increases the longer HRT is taken for. This increased risk returns to normal within about 5 years of stopping treatment.
The risk of blood clots in HRT users is highest during the first year of treatment. The increased risk is up to 3x higher in users of HRT compared with non-users.
The risks of taking HRT may be different in women who have early menopause. If this is the case for you, you should discuss these risks with your doctor.
Patients should be routinely monitored by their doctor during HRT treatment. It is also a good idea to know some of the symptoms associated with these conditions. More information can be found on the NHS website for blood clots, breast cancer, endometrial cancer and stroke as well as information on the risks of HRT.
Before taking any medication, it is important to read the Patient Information Leaflet. You can find information leaflets for your medicines by typing them into the search bar at medicines.org, or by contacting us.
