Contain the female sex hormone : Progesterone. They are taken as part of HRT for the menopause.
In women with an intact womb, oestrogen based HRT stimulates the growth and build-up of the womb lining (endometrium). This can lead to endometrial cancer if the growth is unopposed. Progesterone works by opposing oestrogen's effect on the womb lining.
Utrogestan capsules are taken as part of each monthly oestrogen cycle. The progesterone causes the womb lining to be shed as a bleed, like a period. This reduces the risk of endometrial cancer, though it does not eliminate this risk entirely. Taking progesterone with oestrogen is known as combined HRT.
What is it used for?
It is used for women who have not had a hysterectomy, who are taking oestrogen based hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for the menopause.
Utrogestan is used to oppose the effect of the oestrogen on the womb lining and reduce the risk of endometrial cancer in these women.
