Evorel Sequi HRT Patches - Have they worked for you?

Posted , 8 users are following.

After being in per-menopuase for about three years now, this year has got a whole lot worse with my symptoms of bloating, digestive problems, hair loss, night sweats, memory loss, feeling low etc etc. I have only relied so far on herbal supplements which to be honest I think do not help a great deal.

My doctor has prescribed me Everol Sequii 50 mcg patches which I am due to start this week if my predicted period arrives when it is meant to! So I am just interested to hear for those that have been on them, have they worked for you... or not?

It would be good to hear your experiences of using HRT patches and don't mind hearing if it is good or bad! x

    Hello, I started with these patches and once my period stopped was moved onto conti patches. They have virtually stopped any hot sweats and dryness. I still have aches but not as many. I have been on the patches for over 2 years and don't want to stop.

    Hi there,

    I tried evorel sequi for 6 months but had to stop them as i gradually, as each month went by, became progesterone intolerant to the type of progesterone in them. I suffered low mood/feeling angry and terrible breast pain like really bad mastitis.

    I then tried different types of patch regimes before settling with Femseven sequi which do not give me side effects but are hard to keep on and keep falling off... also because of the non-stick issues the manufacturer have now withdrawn them to try and sort the issue, they told me it'd be a year before they are back in circulation so not sure what to do when i run out next time!! Hopefully you'll be ok on the evorel as apart from the progesterone side effects, i did feel they helped me in other ways such as with aching joints etc... plus - they stick like glue!! Defo give them as shot as a lot of women use them with no probs. Good luck.

    Thank ladies for your views on them. I started them yesterday so it will be very interesting to see if they make a difference to the long list of miserable symptoms! I vowed never to go on HRT but actually the risks are so over inflated in the media. And I have come to a point that I cannot go on feeling so rubbish and not the person I was. I hope these patches at least alleviates some of the symptoms...

    I am now 2/3 months down the line and I have mixed feelings about them. My night sweats and being hot has stopped, my mood is slightly better but I still ache from head to foot and have digestive issues. I also have breast tenderness which seems to be constant which I am concerned about together with quite heavy bleeding. So no miracle cure. I am off to see my doctor in a weeks time so will see what she has to say about it. Some doctors change HRT to get the right one that suits you. I'll keep you posted.

    Just a update as my breast tenderness has got considerably worse. Digestive issues as well with tender pain and I think this is the HRT patch. Off to the docs next week to discuss but thinking of coming off to see if these symptoms go. Honestly... I don't know whats worse. The discomfort being on HRT or the discomfort of going through the menopause!
