Frequently asked questions

Utrogestan contains a female hormone called progesterone and should be used in combination with estrogen to reduce the symptoms of the menopause. Each utrogestan capsule contains 100mg micronized progesterone. Using utrogestan with an estrogen separately can be ideal for women who still have a womb (uterus) and like to use oestrogens in patches or non-combination forms. Utrogestan 100mg capsules is an oral medication only. Utrogestan 200mg vaginal capsules are inserted into the vagina.

Utrogestan contains a progesterone which is near identical to the hormone produced by the body before menopause and therefore risks of minor and serious side effects are far fewer than alternative types of progesterone.

Please Note: Utrogestan is not a contraceptive. If it is less than 12 months since your last menstrual period or you are under 50 years old, you may still need to use additional contraception to prevent pregnancy. Do not use a hormonal contraceptive while using HRT.

Utrogestan 100mg capsules is an oral medication only and should be taking alongside estrogen treatment for women experiencing symptoms of the menopause. Utrogestan should be taken in an empty stomach because taking utrogestan with food can increase the risk of drowsiness and increases the absorption of progesterone therefore increasing risk of side effects. Take your estrogen HRT at the same time as utrogestan.

Women still having periods: The recommended dose is two capsules daily at bedtime for twelve days in the last half of each menstrual cycle (Day 15 to Day 26). Withdrawal bleeding may occur in the following week. Women with no periods for over 12m: One capsule can be given at bedtime from day 1 to 25 of each 28 day oestrogen HRT cycle.

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

The following side effects have been reported since Utrogestan came on the market and may happen with Utrogestan taken orally:

  • Stomach pain
  • Nausea (sickness in the stomach)
  • Tiredness
  • Headache
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Intense itching (pruritus)

 

If you have any of these side effects tell your doctor. They may decide to stop your treatment for a while. The list above isn’t exhaustive. If you experience serious side effects or side effects lasting longer than 3 months then you should consult your doctor immediately.

Make sure you read the patient information leaflet for a full list of side effects, cautions and contraindications. You should only take HRT once you have understood all the warnings and precautions as HRT may increase your chances of getting certain cancers or cardiovascular disease. If you are concerned discuss this with your doctor or The Family Chemist clinician.
