HRT | Evamist® and Contact with Others

From the Menopause and Hormones Articles List

HRT and Transdermal SpraysI've discovered through trial and error that Evamist® is the best hormone replacement therapy for me, but I worry that it will transfer to my small child. How do I avoid that?


Evamist® is a transdermal spray that delivers a low dosage of estrogen (etradiol) through the skin on the forearm.

The forearm has thin, delicate skin, allowing delivery of the product to the body's tissue. It is not recommended that you apply this product to your buttocks or tummy area as the fatty tissue under the skin will not allow as easy of a delivery of the estrogen.

According to the Evamist® product information, the mist only takes 60 seconds to dry, but it takes about 30 minutes to fully absorb. To ensure full absorption and minimal transfer, you should not allow others to make contact with the area of skin where the spray was applied for at least 30 minutes after application. Also, you should not wash or bathe for 30 minutes after application.
