FemHRT is used to treat symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, burning, and irritation. It is also utilized to prevent osteoporosis after menopause. 

It is a medication that contains a combination of ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone, belonging to the drug classes of contraceptives and sex hormone combinations. Ethinyl estradiol is a form of estrogen, while norethindrone is a form of progesterone. 

The medication works by providing hormonal balance during menopause, addressing symptoms related to low estrogen levels, and preventing bone loss associated with menopause.

Do's

  • This is the most important step. Discuss your symptoms and medical history with your healthcare provider to see if FemHRT is right for you. They will also determine the best type and dosage of FemHRT for you.
  • This includes taking the medication exactly as prescribed and attending all follow-up appointments.
  • Be patient: It may take some time to find the right dose and for FemHRT to start working effectively.
  • This includes eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep. These lifestyle habits can help to improve your overall health and well-being, and may also help to reduce menopausal symptoms.
  • Track your symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings. This can help you and your healthcare provider to monitor your progress and make adjustments to your treatment plan as needed.

This is not an exhaustive list, and other side effects may occur. If you experience any unusual or severe side effects while taking FemHRT, contact your healthcare provider for medical advice.

FemHRT can increase your risk of developing blood clots, which can be serious or even fatal. The risk is higher if you have certain risk factors, such as a history of blood clots, smoking, obesity, or if you are going to be immobile for a long period of time (such as during surgery or bed rest)

FemHRT may also increase your risk of stroke, especially if you have high blood pressure or other risk factors for stroke.

Taking estrogen alone, or estrogen with a progestin, may increase your risk of developing breast cancer. The risk is higher the longer you take FemHRT.

If you have not had a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus), taking estrogen alone can increase your risk of developing endometrial cancer. To reduce this risk, your healthcare provider will usually prescribe FemHRT, which is a combination of estrogen and progestin

FemHRT can also cause other side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, headache, breast tenderness, and vaginal bleeding. Talk to your healthcare provider about all of the risks and benefits of FemHRT before you start taking it.
