What this medicine is for
Short term treatment of symptoms of oestrogen deficiency due to the menopause, whether natural or surgically induced. In women with an intact uterus, oestrogen should always be opposed by progestogen in an adequate dosage regimen to ensure secretory transformation of the endometrium at regular intervals (see CLINICAL TRAILS and DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION). Combination HRT should not be used in hysterectomised women because it is not needed in these women and it may increase the risk of breast cancer.
