HRT made easy: Buy Femoston online

Femoston is a pill you can take every day to help control menopausal symptoms, like hot fliushes, mood swings, loss of sex drive, sleeping problems and headaches. It’s a combined HRT, which means it carries two hormones that work in a similar way to oestrogen and progesterone.

What is Femoston?

Femoston pills are used in hormone replacement therapy. It’s a combined form of HRT, that contains two hormones that help to override changes in the menstrual cycle that cause menopausal symptoms. 

The menopause can last for several years, and can cause things like vaginal dryness, hot flushes, sleep disruption, loss of sex drive and mood changes. Not everyone needs to take HRT when going through the menopause, but a lot of women find it helps them to ease these symptoms.

What’s the difference between Femoston Conti and Femoston?

Femoston is a sequential treatment that you can get in two doses: 1/10 and 2/10. The dose of progesterone (dydrogesterone) in both is the same (10mg) but the dose of oestrogen (estradiol) is different (1mg in 1/10 and 2mg in 2/10).

Because it’s a sequential therapy, the levels of hormones change in the middle of each monthly pack of pills. Each pack contains 14 pills that contain only estradiol, and 14 pills that contain both estradiol and dydrogesterone. When you take the pills in sequence, it means that you’ll only take one hormone for half the month, and two hormones for the other half. 

This type of HRT is recommended for women who are perimenopausal, or in the earlier stages of the menopause.

After you’ve stopped having bleeds for a certain amount of time (usually a year), this is known as the postmenopsual stage, and you’ll then switch to continuous therapy. In continuous HRT pills, the amount of hormone in the pills stays the same throughout the month. So with Femoston Conti, which is a continuous type of HRT, you get both hormones in all 28 pills in each pack.

This phased approach can help women to better manage their symptoms. 

Do I need a prescription for Femoston?

Femoston is a prescription only medication, so you do need a consultation with a clinician before you can get it. There are lots of different varieties of HRT available, so it’s important to go through your options with a professional when deciding which one to take. Whether you’ve had a hysterectomy and the stage of menopause you’re at can also make a difference to which option you go for.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT FEMOSTON

What dose of Femoston should I use?

It depends if you’re still having some bleeding or not, and whether you’ve used HRT before. Women who are in the earlier stages of menopause are normally recommended sequential therapy, where the levels of hormones in each pack of pills changes throughout the month. If you’re postmenoapusal, and haven’t had a menstrual bleed for over a year, you might be recommended a continuous HRT like Femoston Conti.

Our clinicians can help you find the right treatment, based on your individual medical profile.

How effective is Cialis?

Cialis works well for most men within the first one or two attempts. Across 16 studies of over 3,000 patients, 81% of men taking tadalafil found it improved erections.

Broken down into different levels of impotence:

  • 86% of men who had mild ED reported improved erections
  • 83% of men who had moderate ED found tadalafil helped them with erections
  • and 72% of men who had severe ED reported better erections.

When should I see a doctor?

If side effects are uncomfortable or get in the way, you should talk to a doctor or pharmacist about using a lower dose.

Speak to a doctor or go to your nearest emergency room if you get any signs of: an allergic reaction (like hives, breathing problems or swelling around the face); heart problems (like chest pain or tightness); sudden vision or hearing loss; a prolonged erection that lasts more than four hours and won’t go away; or any other side effects that bother you or might be a sign of something serious.

Cialis vs Viagra: Which is better?

It's more a question of Cialis or Viagra: which is better for you? Cialis works better than Viagra for some men, and vice versa. The biggest difference between Viagra and Cialis is that Cialis lasts longer (up to 36 hours instead of up to 5 hours) and there’s a version you can take every day (Cialis Daily).

There isn’t much between them in efficacy (how well they work). If you’ve tried Viagra and it doesn’t work great, Cialis might be a better option (and the same goes the other way around).

If you’re not sure which is better for you, your doctor or pharmacy prescriber will be able to help you make a choice before you commit to buy Cialis.
