Combination tablets

There is a tablet that contains the more natural (body identical) type of oestrogen and progesterone in a single tablet (called Bijuve in the UK). If you still have a womb, you will need to take the hormone progesterone if you’re taking oestrogen, to prevent the womb lining getting too thick and to keep the cells healthy.

Combination tablets can be useful if you want only one HRT preparation, however it is harder to adjust the dose of oestrogen when using combination tablets. Sometimes you need to alter your dose of oestrogen to get better symptom control, but you don’t necessarily need to change your progesterone dose. For this reason, many women take oestrogen and progesterone in separate ways.
