    Hi , I am not on the same HRT as you I take pill form but I also had to take first pill on first day of my period, I took them for 28 days then started next pack straight away, within 2 days I had a break through bleed (period) for 4 days and that was it. Yes you should have regular periods but don't worry if you start sooner or later sometimes your normal cycle can kick in . They say to give HRT a good 3 to 6 months to get into your system. Hope all goes well for you .

    Evorel sequi is a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) preparation. It consists of two types of patches: Evorel 50 patches, which contain estradiol (previously spelt oestradiol in the UK) and Evorel conti patches, which contain estradiol and norethisterone. A bleed is supposed to occur every month towards the end of the conti patches. However, a quick google of 'do evorel sequi stop periods' finds many post from women saying that their periods stopped.

    I don't use them myself so can't speak from personal experience, but it seems that everyone's experience is different.
