Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Evorel Sequi Patch?

The Evorel Patch is a form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) used by women who are experiencing side effects of menopause. The active ingredient in Evorel Patches is estradiol.

Menopause is when a woman stops having a period and is unable to get pregnant naturally. Menopause usually occurs between 45 and 55 as a result of a woman’s oestrogen levels declining.

Common symptoms of menopause include:

  • hot flushes
  • night sweats
  • mood swings
  • vaginal dryness
  • reduced sex drive

You can buy the Evorel Patch online from trusted prescribers such as e-Surgery or from your local GP. If you choose to buy Evorel Patches online from e-Surgery we will require you to fill out a quick 2-minute health questionnaire to ensure the medication is right for you.

How do Evorel Sequi patches work?

Evorel Sequi patches are a type of HRT. This treatment contains two active ingredients which are estradiol and norethisterone. The first is oestrogen and the second is a progestogen. The hormones are spread evenly throughout each patch. The hormones pass from the patch to your body via your skin. 

Evorel Sequi patches replace the oestrogen that is normally released by your ovaries. However, the increased amount of oestrogen can cause the lining of your womb to build up. This is why norethisterone is included to help inhibit this from occurring.

What are the active ingredients in Evorel Sequi patches?

The active ingredients in Evorel Sequi patches are estradiol, which is a type of oestrogen, and norethisterone, which is a type of progestogen.
