I have been on Femosten Conti for several months and have changed from a different HRT medication which was also the brand Femosten, but I cannot recall its name. I commenced on the first medication to manage menopausal symptoms. It has certainly helped with the symptoms, especially the Femosten Conti. I have noticed some spotting on occasion. It is very minimal. I wear panty liners so note any discharge or bleeding. It is what I would describe as infrequent. I am not sure if I should see my GP about this.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Thank for the query. I can understand your concern.
Femoston conti contains Dydrogesterone and Estradiol hemihydrate means combination of progesterone and estrogen to treat the symptoms of menopause. Usually prolonged use of hormone replacement therapy is not recommended. If using for prolonged periods, then regular general checkup is advised to diagnose any problems related to hormonal use. Irregular spotting after menopause should be considered seriously as sometimes it may indicate some problem. Usual causes are atrophic endometrium, cervical erosion, increased endometrial thickness, etc. HRT is not advisable in case of unknown cause of pelvic bleed usually. So, please consult your gynecologist once, get examined and go for pap smear test and ultrasound with this workup the possible cause of your problem can be identified and treated. If symptoms of menopause are minimal, then herbal extracts like Estro G are better with less side-effects. Hope I have answered your question. I will be happy to answer any further follow up questions. Take care.
