About

The Evra patch is a combined hormonal contraceptive method containing oestrogen and progestogen. It is a thin beige plaster, made of three layers of plastic, which is stuck to the skin and changed weekly. It is a good option if you want to stick something on and forget about it for a week. It can help to control bleeding as well as alleviate nausea as you don't have to take it orally. The progestogen in the patch is changed by the body into the progestogen found in popular combined pills like Microgynon and Rigevidon. The risk of blood clots with the patch may be slightly higher when compared to other combined methods.
