Estrofem is a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that is used for the short-term symptomatic treatment of women who have had their womb surgically removed (which is called hysterectomy) and who have signs and symptoms of oestrogen deficiency.
A woman’s last menstrual period is called the menopause and usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55 years. Around the time of the menopause, the body slowly stops producing the two sex hormones called oestrogen and progesterone. Periods become irregular until they finally stop.
If a woman has surgical or natural menopause the production of these hormones is diminished or stopped.
Estrofem replaces the hormone called oestrogen which your body stops making after surgical or natural menopause.
The falling or reduced hormone levels may cause you to experience uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, sleeplessness, dry vagina, urinary problems, headaches, mood swings, lack of concentration or loss of energy.
The oestrogen in Estrofem relieves the symptoms caused by a lack of oestrogen.
If you have not had a hysterectomy your doctor may prescribe another medicine (a progesterone type medicine) to be taken with Estrofem for 10-14 days of your 28 day cycle. It is very important to take both medications exactly the way your doctor has prescribed.
