The Contraceptive Patch

The Contraceptive patch, otherwise known as Evra, offers users a slight variant to the pill. Small, sticky and beige it looks much like a nicotine patch, containing both oestrogen and progestogen which are continuously delivered to the body. The patch  works in effectively the same way as the combined pill, through the dual process of preventing the release of an egg for fertilization within the womb  and thickening the mucus around the cervix, making it difficult for sperm to reach the inside of the womb.
