Cyclo-Progynova belongs to a group of medicines called hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Cyclo-Progynova contains two hormones called estradiol (an oestrogen) and norgestrel (a progestogen). These act in different ways in your body.
During the menopause (sometimes called “the change of life”) a woman’s body slowly produces less oestrogen. This may cause hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings and dryness in the vagina.
Over a long time it may also cause a thinning of the bones, which may be more likely to then break (osteoporosis).
Cyclo-Progynova works by replacing the oestrogen you lose during the menopause and therefore
improves the unpleasant symptoms you may get. Oestrogen can also make the lining of your womb grow more than usual, which may lead to cancer developing there. The other hormone in Cyclo- Progynova called a progestogen reduces the chance of getting cancer of the womb.
Cyclo-Progynova is used for:
•Treating symptoms of the menopause. This includes hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings and dryness in the vagina •Preventing thinning of the bones (osteoporosis) in women who are not allowed to take other types of medicines to prevent this from happening.
Also prescribed for: Substitutive therapy of the premenopauses and menopauses disorders, estrogenic insufficiency after an ovariectomy or after actinic castration; menstrual disorders, primary and secundary amenorrhea; menopause osteoporosis profilaxy.
