Ortho Evra is a contraceptive skin patch that contains a combination of female hormones, specifically ethinyl estradiol and norelgestromin.

Its primary mechanism of action is to prevent ovulation, which is the release of an egg from an ovary during the menstrual cycle.

In addition to preventing ovulation, Ortho Evra also causes changes in cervical mucus and the uterine lining. These changes make it more difficult for sperm to reach the uterus and for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.

Ortho Evra does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Additional methods of protection, such as condoms, should be used to reduce the risk of STIs.


  • Take one pill every day at approximately the same time, with or without food. This helps maintain consistent hormone levels in your body.
  • Start taking Lo Ovral on the first day of your period (Day 1 of your menstrual cycle).
  • If your period starts on a Sunday, you can also begin taking the pills on that day.
  • Take the pills in the order they appear on the blister pack. There are 21 active white tablets containing hormones and 7 inactive pink tablets without hormones.
  • Take one active pill daily for 21 consecutive days.
  • Once you finish the active pills, start taking the pink inactive pills daily for 7 days, even if you are still menstruating.
  • After completing all 28 pills, begin a new pack the following day regardless of whether your period has ended.


  • Do not skip pills or take them at irregular intervals. This can decrease the effectiveness of Lo Ovral in preventing pregnancy.
  • Do not take more than one pill at a time.
