When you begin taking Evorel Conti patches, you must see your doctor once a year or more, to check that you are getting the right amount of HRT for your symptoms. You should regularly check your breasts for any lumps and go for cervical smear tests.

You may need to be seen by your doctor more often when taking Evorel Conti patches, if you have:

  • asthma
  • gallstones
  • any problem caused by the womb lining becoming thicker
  • an increased risk of blood clots
  • migraines

  • triglycerides, which is a high level of fat in your blood
  • breast problems
  • thyroid problems
  • a history of sudden swelling in the throat or face

Stop using Evorel Conti patches and see a doctor straight away if you notice:

  • you are pregnant
  • yellow skin or whites of the eyes (jaundice)
  • an increase in your blood pressure, such as sudden dizziness, headache, or tiredness
  • migraines which have never happened before
  • signs of a blood clot, such as chest pain, swelling in the legs, or difficulty breathing
  • fits (seizures)
  • signs of breast or womb cancer

Some medicines can stop Evorel Conti patches working the way they are meant to. This can cause bleeding, like a period.

Speak to your doctor if you take medication for:

  • HIV
  • epilepsy
  • asthma
  • Hepatitis C
  • high blood pressure
  • tuberculosis
  • depression, especially any containing St John’s wort

Evorel Conti patches may not be suitable for you if you:

  • are allergic to the ingredients in the patch
  • have a blood problem called porphyria
  • have, or have ever, breast cancer or cancer that is made worse by oestrogen
  • have had blocked arteries
