    Estrofem is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Contains the female sex hormone estradiol. Estrofem is used after menopause, especially in women who have had their womb removed (had a hysterectomy) and therefore do not need combined estrogen/progestagen therapy.

    Estrofem is used to reduce postmenopausal symptoms.During menopause, the amount of estrogen produced in the female body decreases. This condition can cause symptoms such as face, neck, and chest warmth (hot flashes). Estrofem reduces such post-menopausal symptoms. Estrofem should only be prescribed if your symptoms (such as postmenopausal hot flashes) seriously interfere with your daily life.Experience in the treatment of women over 65 years of age is limited.

Importance of estradiol for the body

    The human body produces estradiol in small amounts during early adulthood. The levels of estradiol peak at around 200 pg/mL at the time of menstruation, and fall again at ovulation. However, estrogen levels can be increased by testosterone. Proper balance of hormones in the body is essential to avoid serious illnesses and infertility. If the body produces too little estradiol, women may experience rapid fatigability and accelerated aging.

2.How to use ESTROFEM?

    Always use Estrofem exactly as your doctor has told you. If you are unsure, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

If you have had your uterus removed or you do not have vaginal bleeding and you are not using other hormone therapy products, you can start treatment on any suitable day.Take one tablet every day at the same time of day. After you have finished all 28 tablets in the calendar and cycle box, continue the treatment with a new calendar and cycle box without interruption.

    Your doctor will prescribe the lowest dose that will treat your symptoms as soon as possible. If you think this dose is too strong or too weak, talk to your doctor.If you have had your uterus removed and you have not had a condition called endometriosis (the presence of tissue outside the uterus), your doctor will not prescribe a progestagen (other female hormone) additionally.

    If you have ever used other HRT products, please ask your doctor or pharmacist when you should start using Estrofem.There is usually no need to worry, especially if you have breakthrough bleeding or spotting within the first few months of taking HRT (see section 2 HRT and cancer for more information, Excessive thickening of the lining of the uterus (endometrial hyperplasia) and cancer of the lining of the uterus (endometrial cancer).

Special use cases

Estrogens can cause fluid retention and therefore patients with cardiac or renal impairment should be carefully observed. Since the circulating levels of the active ingredients of Estrofem are expected to increase, patients with end-stage renal disease should be followed closely.

Liver failure:
It should never be used in cases of acute liver disease or a history of liver disease that prevents liver function tests from returning to normal.

In case of liver disorders (eg liver adenoma), treatment should be closely monitored, and treatment should be stopped if jaundice or hepatic dysfunction occurs.

Using estrofem for (Hrt) Feminizing Hormone Therapy

    When Using Estrofem for Feminizing Horroid Therapy, it is important to understand the risks of the treatment. This hormone is not likely to lower the sperm count, but you should still take birth control if you are in a relationship with someone who may become pregnant. However, if you are considering a higher dose of Estrofem, you should be prepared for several possible side effects, including decreased libido and a decrease in sexual desire. The effect of Estrofem on a woman's body can last from six months to several years, so it is important to plan ahead.

    Some side effects of Estrofem include increased risk of diabetes, especially in women with a history of type 2 diabetes. Other risks of Estrofem are increased risks of heart disease, stroke, and breast cancer. The FDA approves most Estrofem treatments for women. These hormones are very safe and effective, but you should speak with your doctor before using Estrofem.

    Some studies suggest that Estrofem may increase the risk of certain health conditions, particularly when you have a pre-existing condition or are over 50. These risks may be lessened if the estrogen has a positive effect on your life. In addition, Estrofem can reduce your stress levels, which is an added bonus. Smoking and Estrofem can also raise the risk of blood clots and stroke.
