Oestrogen replacement therapy Estradiol Valerate Progynova

Uses
Progynova (Estradiol Valerate) (formerly spelled as oestradiol valerate) is indicated for the treatment of the menopause. It is an oestrogen hormone that works by supplementing the body's hormonal levels, which can be decreased due to the menopause. This form of treatment is called hormone replacement therapy (commonly abbreviated to HRT), and is generally used on a short term basis to relive vaginal burning, dryness and itching caused by the menopause.

Other menopausal symptoms it relieves include mood changes, sleep problems, hot flashes, night sweats and mucocutaneous involution. These distressing symptoms are triggered due to the progressive decline of oestradiol production by the ovaries, which is a primary characteristic of the menopause. The active ingredient in this product is an ester of oestrogen, which can reverse these menopausal symptoms by replenishing the body's hormones. It may even slow down bone loss caused by the menopause, however it is not used as a first line treatment for osteoporosis.

In women who have not had a hysterectomy, it may cause excessive growth of the uterine lining (in the womb). Doctors may recommend the use of a progestogen so as to prevent endometrial growth (which could lead to endometrial cancer if left untreated). Use of a progestogen in combination with oestrogen replacement (referred to as combined HRT) has yet to be proven to interfere with the ability of oestrogen to work as indicated. Ask your doctor for more details.

Dosage and Administration
HRT with Progynova (Estradiol Valerate) is only on a short term basis. The need for treatment will be continuously re-assessed by your doctor, and it should only be continued in cases where the long term positive effects outweigh all potential risks of prolonged treatment. This medicine is provided as two blister pack strips, each of which contains 28 tablets.

Each strip contains 28 tablets, and has a calendar with the days printed on them printed on them, so as to make it easy for patients to know when each dose is due. Doctors generally tell patients to take one tablet (which contains 2mg of the active ingredient) every day. Although it does not matter if it is taken with or without food, doctors generally recommend taking it at the same time every day.

  • Acne
