What is Utrogestan?

Utrogestan is a brand of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for the menopause. It is used to relieve symptoms of the menopause in women who have not undergone a hysterectomy (partial or entire removal of the womb/uterus).

When taking an oestrogen-based HRT, the levels of oestrogen can reach levels which surpass the baseline. This causes the endometrium (the lining of the womb) to grow uncontrollably, which increases the risk of endometrial cancer.

Progesterone HRT - such as Utrogestan - should be used in conjunction with an oestrogen-based HRT to oppose its action.

A progestin, such as Utrogestan, is introduced to shed the endometrium and reduce the risk of cancer developing inside the womb.

Together, oestrogen and a progestin make up a combined hormone replacement therapy. They work in synergy to raise the levels of the hormones which taper off throughout the menopause, reducing the symptoms and improving a woman's quality of life.


What is menopause?

A woman's body undergoes a number of hormonal changes during the menopause.

The natural sex hormones, known as oestrogen and progesterone, dwindle, slowly inhibiting ovulation and the shedding of the endometrium (the lining of the womb).

This can cause a number of other symptoms, including:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Headaches
  • Hot flushes
  • Joint pain
  • Mood swings
  • Night sweats
  • Palpitations
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Reduced muscle mass
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Vaginal dryness

For some women, these symptoms can be severe and have a drastic impact on their lifestyle and general well-being. Under these circumstances, a doctor can prescribe an HRT treatment to relieve the menopausal symptoms and improve a woman's quality of life.


How to take Utrogestan?

Take two 100 mg capsules once daily for 12 days from day 15 to 26 of each 28-day cycle of oestrogen.

Utrogestan should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Take Utrogestan without food.

If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember it. However, if it is nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose.

Do not take more Utrogestan to make up for a missed dose.

If you take more Utrogestan than you should, talk to your doctor or go to a hospital. Take the medicine pack with you. You may experience dizziness, fatigue or painful periods.


Utrogestan Side Effects

Before you start using Utrogestan, it's important to read the enclosed patient information leaflet. The patient information leaflet contains instructions on storing, using and disposing Utrogestan, as well as safety information.

You can read the Utrogestan patient information leaflet online.

All medicines carry the risk of side effects, though not everyone gets them. Being aware of the side effects your medication poses is crucial to your health while undergoing treatment.

If you experience any side effects to Utrogestan - regardless of whether they are listed about or in the patient information leaflet - report them to your doctor.

Allergies

Do not take Utrogestan if you are allergic to any of the ingredients listed within the patient information leaflet.

If you experience an allergic reaction to Utrogestan, stop taking the medicine and seek medical attention right away. Go to your nearest accident and emergency department. Remember to take the packaging and any remaining medicine with you, so that doctors treating you know exactly what you have taken.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

Do not take Utrogestan if you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are breastfeeding.

Utrogestan is not a contraceptive. If you become pregnant while taking Utrogestan, stop taking the medicine and consult your doctor immediately.

If you are under 50, or if it has been less than 12 months since your last period, you should use additional forms of contraception such as condoms to prevent pregnancy while taking Utrogestan.

Other safety information

Always read the accompanying patient information leaflet before you start taking Utrogestan.

Inform our online prescribers of all the medicines you are currently taking. This includes those prescribed to you, or bought over the counter, as well as health or herbal supplements.

Do not take Utrogestran past the expiry date printed on the packaging.

Never throw away Utrogestan tablets via household or water waste, as this can harm the environment. Instead, take any unwanted or expired medication to your local pharmacy and ask them to dispose it for you.

Always store Utrogestan out of sight and reach from children and pets.

Never share medicines prescribed to you with others.
