Angeliq Description

Angeliq may be prescribed for women who have difficulties with the symptoms of menopause, including night sweats, hot flashes, and vaginal dryness. Some women are able to endure the symptoms or they may not be as affected as others, while other women may lose sleep and find intercourse to be painful. This should be a time in your life where you do not have to worry about an unplanned pregnancy. You should not be fanning yourself with anything handy just to cool off your head and face, or have to change your pillowcases from the night-time perspiration, or put your sex life on hold.

How to Relieve Menopausal Symptoms with Angeliq

Angeliq contains Estradiol, an estrogen, and Drospirenone which is a progestin. Both of these hormones diminish as menopause occurs, causing the symptoms that make you uncomfortable. Estrogen is important during your child-bearing years and progestin prepares your body for a fertilized egg; but now your body doesn’t think you need these hormones any longer. By taking Angeliq as directed, your estrogen and progestin levels will rise to where your symptoms of menopause no longer bother you. Your risk of osteoporosis also declines with Angeliq.

About Estrogen, Progestin, and Menopause

Before menopause, your main source of estrogen comes from your ovaries. It is responsible for your female physical features during puberty, helps control your menstruation cycle, protects bone health for both men and women, and affects your moods, skin, heart, and tissues. Progesterone is produced in your ovaries and adrenal glands, as well as your placenta when you become pregnant. It’s important for preparing your body for conception, pregnancy, and to regulate your menstrual cycle.

Menopause signals a time when your body is slowing down to enjoy the family instead of adding to it. Sometimes the cost of not having to worry about your monthly period or becoming pregnant is the intense hot flashes that come on suddenly and ruins your make-up or hair; or you may experience painful sexual intimacy because your vaginal tissues have thinned and there is decreased lubrication.

Before You Take Angeliq

If you have had a hysterectomy, your doctor may recommend that you may or may not need a progestin hormone. Usually, you will be told that without a uterus, you will only need estrogen. There are still many ongoing studies, however, as to whether or not taking progesterone after a hysterectomy is helpful or hurtful.

If there is a chance you could be pregnant, take a test before taking Angeliq. Explain other medical conditions or allergies to your doctor and list any OTC and Rx meds you are currently taking, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements so it can be determined if Angeliq is safe for you.

Angeliq Precautions

You should not drink alcohol or smoke while taking Angeliq. Alcohol can increase your risk of osteoporosis and change blood sugar levels and worsen your diabetes or cause it; while smoking will cancel or decrease the efficacy of taking oral estrogens for menopausal symptoms, including estrogen’s ability to prevent osteoporosis.
