Description

Evra Patch as a Contraception

There are many types of contraceptive medications. A contraceptive patch, such as Evra, is a type of birth control that is adhered to the skin and can be over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy.

A contraceptive patch releases the daily dose of hormones into the body that will prevent the body from releasing an egg. The patch can release these hormones through the skin and into the bloodstream where they will then work to prevent an unwanted pregnancy.

What is the Evra Contraceptive Patch and how does it work?

The patch works the same as oral contraceptive pills. The hormones circulate in the bloodstream and then cause the lining of the cervix to thicken and the lining of the womb to thin, making it more difficult for a sperm cell to reach the egg.

Evra contains a type of the two sex hormones progesterone and oestrogen which makes it a combined hormonal contraceptive. These two ingredients are norelgestromin and ethinyl oestradiol and are released into the body in a daily dose.
