Frequently Asked Questions

What is Femoston? 

Femoston is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) that contains oestrogen and progestogen, two female hormones that help restore the natural hormonal balance in women and treat symptoms of menopause. 

Femoston is used in postmenopausal women at least 6 months since last menses.

How does Femoston work? 

The amount of oestrogen in a woman’s body decreases during menopause. The most common symptoms of this drop in oestrogen are a hot face, neck, and chest or what we call “hot flushes”. Femoston contains two female hormones: oestrogen (estradiol hemihydrate) and progestogen (dydrogesterone) that help relieve the symptoms by restoring the natural hormonal balance in women. 

Femoston also prevents the risk of developing fragile bones or osteoporosis after menopause. 

What are the benefits of taking Femoston? 

Hot flashes (affecting the face, neck, and chest), night sweats, irregular menstrual cycle, weight gain, thinning of hair, and mood changes are some of the most common symptoms of menopause among women. 

These symptoms, when not treated, can affect one’s daily activities. Taking Femoston HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) restores the natural hormonal balance in women, resulting in the easing of symptoms related to menopause. 

What should I know before taking Femoston? 

Knowing the risks associated with Femoston is important before you start taking the medicine. Inform your doctor of any medical conditions or illnesses that you may have. Notify them of your family’s medical history as well. Once you start with Femoston, you should schedule a regular check-up with your doctor.

Taking Femoston is not allowed if you have any of these conditions:

  • Have or have ever had breast cancer
  • Cancer sensitive to oestrogens, such as cancer of the womb lining
  • Have ever had a blood clot in a vein, such as in the legs or the lungs 
  • A blood clotting disorder
  • A disease caused by blood clots in the arteries, such as a heart attack, stroke, or angina
  • A liver disease 
  • A tumour sensitive to progestogen, such as a tumour of the brain 
  • unexplained vaginal bleeding 
  • excessive thickening of the womb lining
  • A rare hereditary blood problem called “porphyria”
  • Allergic to oestradiol/ dydrogesterone or any of the other ingredients of Femoston 

If you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, tell your doctor or pharmacist. Certain medicines may react with Femoston. These medicines include medicines for epilepsy, tuberculosis, HIV infection, and herbal remedies containing St John’s Wort. 

Femoston is only for women in the postmenopausal stage. Stop using it if you become pregnant and contact your doctor right away.

Do not use Femoston if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. 

Want To Know More About Femoston?

Before taking Femoston, a prescription from a doctor is needed. The users of this medicine are advised to follow the instructions of the doctor and to read the available patient information leaflet that comes with the medicine. The doctor will prescribe you the lowest dose that will control the symptoms you have. 

Drink one tablet a day, preferably at the same time every day. Swallow the tablet whole, then drink water. To guide you in taking the tablets, the strip is marked with the days of the week. The first 14 days (Day 1 to 14) of the strip only contains oestrogen, while the next 14 days (Day 15 to 28) have oestrogen and progestogen. Once you finish the strip, start immediately with the next. 

Start taking Femoston on the first day of your menstrual period if you are still having regular periods. If not, you can start with Femoston at any time. If you are taking a different kind of HRT, you can switch to Femoston on the day after finishing the previous pack. 

Those taking Femoston may experience bleeding (like a menstrual period) and others may not. If you notice any erraticism, consult your doctor. 

Femoston contains active ingredients oestradiol hemihydrate and dydrogesterone. It comes in two different strengths: Femoston 1/10 and Femoston 2/10. 

Femoston 1/10: Tablets on the first half (first 14 days) contain 1mg oestradiol (as hemihydrate) and the second half (next 14 days) contain a combination of 1mg oestradiol (as hemihydrate) and 10mg dydrogesterone.

 Femoston 2/10: Tablets on the first half (first 14 days) contain 2mg oestradiol (as hemihydrate) and the second half (next 14 days) contain a combination of 2mg oestradiol (as hemihydrate) and 10mg dydrogesterone. 

If in case you forget to take your Femoston tablet, take it as soon as you remember. If you missed taking it for more than 12 hours, do not use the missed tablet and just continue taking the rest as normal. 

If in case you take more Femoston than you should, it is unlikely to bring you any harm. Side effects like breast tenderness, tiredness, or problems with skin (such as acne) may occur.  Talk to your doctor if you are bothered by these side effects.

Like other medicines, Femoston can affect each individual differently. Serious and persistent side effects should be consulted immediately with your doctor. 

Common side effects associated with Femoston include vaginal thrush, depression, nervousness, migraine, dizziness, feeling sick, vomiting, wind (flatulence), allergic skin reactions (rash or itching), generally feeling unwell, weak or tired, swelling of the ankles, feet or fingers unscheduled bleeding or spotting, heavy, irregular or painful periods, pelvic pain, vaginal discharge, and weight gain.

Some serious side effects that may occur during the take of Femoston include allergic reactions (swelling of the skin around the face and neck, heart attack, tumours, and heavy, irregular, or painful genital bleeding. Stop the medication and report to your doctor immediately if you get any of these side effects.  

Hair loss in some women can be slowed down, or even stopped, by taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) like Femoston. However, there are also cases where hair loss continues despite the HRT intake.
