Femoston Description

While some women can sail through menopause and not experience any symptoms, others may need some help to curb the night sweats, mood changes, vaginal dryness, and hot flashes. Talk to your doctor about Femoston, a hormone replacement therapy that consists of Estradiol Hemihydrate (estrogen) and Dydrogesterone (progestogen). If you have undergone a hysterectomy, ask your doctor about other Rx treatments that contain an estrogen only. Studies have been done that suggests taking a progesterone after a hysterectomy is pointless or a health risk, and yet others claim it is beneficial. Discuss this with your doctor before deciding what is best for you.

These Hormones are Taken a Little Differently Than Other HRT Meds

Femoston is taken sequentially, which may be different from many other hormone therapy meds. This means you will take estrogen (Estradiol Hemihydrate) on a continuous basis and progestogen (Dydrogesterone) is added for the last two weeks of every month. As your hormone levels increase, you should begin to notice less menopausal symptoms and be able to enjoy this time of your life instead of packing a fan with you, changing your damp pillow cases, and painful intercourse. As a second-line treatment for osteoporosis, your doctor can prescribe Femoston to boost your estrogen levels and help decrease your risk of fractures.

Conditions Treated by Femoston

Women in their 40’s will gradually produce less estrogen and may start experiencing some of the symptoms of menopause. As you near your late 40’s, the estrogen decline will speed up and more symptoms can appear. By your late 40’s or early 50’s, menstruation will stop. You are considered to be in menopause when you have not menstruated for 12 consecutive months. However, you may still have hormonal activity in your ovaries for 6-12 months after menopause.

You should continue to use a contraceptive for up to 1 year after menopause in case you produce an egg and become pregnant. If you reach menopause before your 50’s, you may be advised to use contraception for 2 more years. Hormone replacement therapy should be discussed with your doctor to decide what is in your best interest as to whether you need to worry about low estrogen levels.

Before You Receive an Rx for Femoston

Be certain you are not pregnant before taking Femoston. Explain other medical conditions or allergies you have to your doctor and discuss any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, include herbal, dietary, or vitamin supplements so it can be determined if Femoston is the right medication for you. Hormone replacement therapy is a short-term treatment to take care of menopausal symptoms and should be stopped once this stage of your life has passed.

Femoston Precautions and Proper Use

Keep all doctor appointments so your health can be monitored while taking Femoston. Keep Femoston and all medications out of children’s reach. Be sure you understand how to take Femoston and what to do if you forget a dose. Until you know how your body will react to Femoston, do not drive or attempt other tasks that may be unsafe if you are not alert.
