I’ve been using the evra patch for around 7 months now and love it! My mood has drastically improved and feel so much happier day to day. At first I noticed light nausea in the evenings, but this wore off over time. In the first 3 months I noticed a light rash around my chin and cheeks that would wear off on my patch free week then come back but that had since disappeared. I don’t think I’ve put on weight since starting however I have noticed an increase in cup size. My periods have been lighter, shorter and so regular. It’s so practical and very discreet, could not recommend enough!

I liked the idea of using the evra patch and it definitely improved my skin but it just wasn't for me ultimately. I had severe nausea/vomiting for the first three months. This gradually got better but I still experienced nausea occasionally. Period like cramps were very bad at first but eased. I had to stop using as I experienced two incidents of visual disturbance that caused concern.

I found it quite a pleasant experience. I've always wore a long sleeves and long trousers so it was never a concern of showing the patch. At the end of the week the patch was looking absolutely grogging. The patch is a very pale colour (I am so pale that people come up to me and tell me) and it didn't even match my skin tone. I developed quite a few side effects particularly in the first month. But it all passed so quickly. The anxiety iexperienced was quite bad at the beginning. My mood improved The longer I was on it. I currently have unexplained pelvic pain, unfortunately the patch never helped with that. Another thing is it made my "periods" a lot more heavier, my periods are normally normal and very short. The withdrawal bleeds became a week long and would start off very heavily after 2 days it would start to calm down. After I stopped using the patch my period went straight back to normal and any residual side effects quickly stopped.
