Buy Progynova TS 50 Patches Online in the UK
Progynova TS 50 (Estradiol) Patches are a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). It contains the female hormone Oestrogen-Estradiol. It is used in postmenopausal women with at least 12 months since their last period to relieve the symptoms occurring after menopause.
The main component of Progynova TS patches is estradiol hemihydrate, a naturally occurring version of the primary female sex hormone, oestrogen.
Progynova TS patches are best suited for women who have had a hysterectomy because they solely contain oestrogen. Progestogen medication should also be provided for women who have not had a hysterectomy to take in conjunction with this medication during the final 12 to 14 days of each 28-day cycle. This is because oestrogen promotes the growth of the endometrium, which, if unchecked, can result in endometrial cancer. Progestogens are administered to counteract oestrogen's impact on the uterine lining and lessen the chance of cancer, albeit they do not completely eradicate it.
In the years leading up to menopause, women's ovaries gradually generate less and less oestrogen, which causes their blood levels of oestrogen to drop. Uncomfortable symptoms including irregular periods, hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, and itchy or dry vagina might be brought on by oestrogen levels that are falling.
Always use this medicine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Please read the patient information leaflet before using this medication.
Applying Progynova TS 50 Patches
Take off the patch's protective liner.
Put the patch on a clean, dry area of your buttocks or lower abdomen, adhesive side down. Applying Progynova TS 50 patches to the breasts is not advised.
Every time, apply the patch to a separate location. Never use the patch twice in the same location. Pick a location that is not greasy, injured, or inflamed. Avoid the waistline as the patch may come off if your clothing is too tight.
Open the pouch and take off the protective liner before applying the patch. Using the palm of the hand, firmly press the patch into place for around 10 seconds, making sure there is good contact, particularly around the edges. Once every week, change the patch.
You can take a bath or take a shower as usual if the patch is put on properly. The patch, however, might fall off in a sauna or really hot bath water.
Continue taking your current pack and the rest of the prescribed treatments for that month if you have been using other HRT medications. The following day, start using the initial Progynova TS 50 patch. Between your old tablets and Progynova TS 50, do not wait.
If you have been receiving HRT medication with a gap week, you should begin Progynova TS 50 right away.
If you're starting HRT for the first time, you can start using Progynova TS 50 at any time.
