This medicine helps to relieve the discomfort many women feel during and after the menopause. It also helps to prevent thinning of the bones (osteoporosis), which can cause fractures.

What is Femoston?

Femoston is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) medication. It contains two types of female hormones, an estrogen called estradiol and a progestogen called dydrogesterone. This medication is given to postmenopausal women after at least 12 months from their last natural period.

How does it work?

Estradiol

The active ingredient, synthetic 17β-estradiol, is chemically and biologically identical to endogenous human estradiol. It replaces the loss of estrogen production in menopausal women and alleviates the symptoms of menopause. Estrogens prevent bone loss after menopause or ovariectomy.

Dydrogesterone

Dydrogesterone is an orally active progestogen that has comparable activity to parenterally administered progesterone.

Because estrogens promote endometrial growth, unopposed estrogens increase the risk of endometrial hyperplasia and cancer. Adding a progestogen greatly reduces the estrogen-induced risk of endometrial hyperplasia in women who have not had a hysterectomy.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Femoston is a hormone replacement therapy (HRT), also called hormone therapy (HT), for women. It contains two active ingredients: estradiol and dydrogesterone. These are forms of the main female sex hormones, estrogen, and progestogen. Femoston is used to relieve menopausal symptoms and is a prescription-only medication.

Women's ovaries produce less and less estrogen until and after menopause. A drop in estrogen levels can cause bothersome physical and psychological symptoms, including:

  • Hot flushes
  • Night sweats
  • Dry mucous membranes (eyes, vagina, or mouth)
  • Irritability, depression, or anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of libido (sexual desire)
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Osteoporosis (decrease in bone mass and density).

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use the Femoston HRT tablets exactly as your doctor has told you. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

When to start taking Femoston

Do not start taking HRT tablets (Femoston) until at least 12 months have passed after your last natural period.

You can start taking estradiol/dydrogesterone any day if:

You are not currently taking any other HRT products.

You are switching from a “combined continuous” HRT product. That is, when you take a tablet or put on a patch each day that contains an estrogen and a progestogen.

You can start taking estradiol/dydrogesterone the day after the end of the 28-day cycle if:

You are changing from a "cyclic" or "sequential" HRT product. That is, when you take a tablet or put on an estrogen-containing patch for the first part of your cycle. Then take a tablet or patch that contains an estrogen and a progestogen for up to 14 days.

How to take this medicine

Swallow the tablet whole with water. You can take the tablet with or without food. Try to take the tablet every day at the same time. This will ensure that there is a constant amount of the product in your body, and will also help you remember to take the tablets. Take one tablet each day, with no rest between packages. The blisters are marked with the days of the week, making it easier for you to remember when to take the tablets.

How much to take

The doctor will try to prescribe the minimum dose to treat your symptoms for the shortest time necessary. Consult your doctor if you think the dose is too strong or not enough. If you are taking this medicine to prevent osteoporosis, the doctor will adjust the dose according to your needs based on your bone mass. Take one salmon-colored tablet daily for a 28-day cycle.
