How does Elleste work?
Estradiol hemihydrate and norethisterone acetate basically mimic oestrogen and progesterone the female sex hormones. While the former is a natural form of oestrogen, the latter is a synthetic type of progesterone. As women approach menopause, their ovaries produce less oestrogen.
These hormones, in the form of Estradiol hemihydrate basically act as supplements as they replace the declining production of oestrogen and help to alleviate the symptoms linked to less oestrogen production such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. The norethisterone acetate hormone is more suited for women who have not undergone a hysterectomy. It is used in combination with Estradiol hemihydrate in what is called combined HRT.
