FemHRT Information

FemHRT (norethindrone acetate and ethinyl estradiol, NA/EE) tablets are the first hormone replacement therapy (HRT) combining estrogen and progesterone in a single pill taken once-a-day, everyday for the relief of menopausal symptoms and the prevention of osteoporosis.

FemHRT (norethindrone acetate and ethinyl estradiol, NA/EE) is a combination of hormones (estrogen and progestin) used to treat menopausal symptoms (e.g., hot flashes, vaginal dryness). FemHRT (norethindrone acetate and ethinyl estradiol, NA/EE) is also used to prevent bone loss (osteoporosis) in people at high risk. If you are only being treated for vaginal menopause symptoms, products applied locally such as vaginal creams, tablets, or rings should be considered before products taken by mouth or absorbed through the skin. There are several medicines (e.g. raloxifene or bisphosphonates) that are safe and effective to prevent or treat bone loss. These medicines should be considered for use before estrogen/progestin HRT for osteoporosis. If you have other medical conditions as well and are prescribed estrogen/progestin HRT for more than one condition, consult your doctor about your treatment plan and its options.

FemHRT Side Effects

FemHRT side effects that may go away during treatment, include dizziness, lightheadedness, headache, stomach upset, bloating, irritability, changes in sleep patterns, fatigue, nausea, weight changes, increased or decreased interest in sex, or breast tenderness.
