How Ogen treats Menopause Symptoms
Estrogen is a female sex hormone important for many functions in the female body. Ogen is a form of estrogen used to treat symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, and vaginal dryness, burning, and irritation. This medication, which is available at our Canadian Pharmacy, may also be used to prevent osteoporosis and the relief of symptoms of breast cancer in men.
What is menopause?
Menopause is a natural biological process that is experienced differently by every woman. Even the age at which menopause begins may be unique to you. Some women reach menopause in their 30s or 40s, and some not until their 60s, but menopause most often occurs between the ages of 50 and 51.
Menopause occurs naturally when your ovaries start producing less estrogen and progesterone. In your reproductive years, these hormones regulate your monthly cycles of ovulation and menstruation. While in your late 30s, production of progesterone decreases, and the remaining eggs from your ovaries are less likely to be fertilized. Eventually your menstrual periods stop, and you can no longer able to become pregnant.
What important information do I need to know before taking Ogen?
Ogen should not be taken if you have any of the following conditions: a history of stroke or blood clot, circulation problems, a hormone-related cancer such as breast or uterine cancer, or abnormal vaginal bleeding. It is important that you tell your doctor if you become pregnant while in treatment as this medication can cause birth defects in an unborn baby.
Your risk of developing endometrial hyperplasia, a condition that may lead to cancer of the uterus may increase while taking this medication. Your doctor might prescribe progestins to lower your risk. Taking this treatment for a long time may increase your risk of breast cancer, heart attack or stroke. Continue to have regular physical exams and self-examine your breast for lumps. It is recommended that your doctor monitor your progress every 3 to 6 months.
