If you’re post-menopausal (so if you haven’t had a period for 1 year) and you haven’t had a hysterectomy, continuous combined HRT options like Indivina are usually the recommended treatments. But if your circumstances are different, it’s likely that you’ll be better suited to a different type of HRT treatment.
For example, if you’re experiencing menopausal symptoms but are still having your period, sequential (or cyclical) HRT products like Elleste Duet tend to be the recommended route. Or if you have had your womb removed during a hysterectomy, oestrogen-only HRT products such as Elleste Solo and Estradot patches are usually better treatment options for you.
Indivina is a combined HRT product that comes in tablet form. Some women like the simplicity of a tablet, as it’s easy to take. But if you’d prefer a skin patch, combined HRT patches like the Evorel Conti patch are a direct topical alternative to Indivina. You replace the patches every couple of days.
Different HRT treatments contain different amounts of hormones, so if a particular quantity of hormones give you adverse side effects, this can play a role in which HRT products are more suitable for you too.
