The patch was extremely convenient to use and it did make my periods more regular however I had extreme headaches whilst on it which hugely affected my life. I didn’t think it was to do with my patch initially however as soon as I removed it as a final resort, my headaches went. They were totally debilitating.

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.

Improved skin
