How does Kliovance work?
The synthetic oestrogen identical to endogenous human oestradiol substitutes for the loss of oestrogen production during the menopause. Oestrogen has several other important actions in metabolic processes including fat metabolism and maintaining bone mass. Norethisterone is a synthetic copy of the hormone progesterone which closely resembles naturally made progesterone, and works in a similar way.
Progesterone acts on the lining of the uterus converting the proliferating phase to the secretory phase. The Norethisterone in Kliovance tablets prevents excess growth of the endometrium in response to the oestrogens present in Kliovance tablets which helps prevent endometrial cancer.
Kliovance contains estradiol and norethisterone acetate medicines. This type of HRT is more suitable for women whose menstrual cycle has already ceased. It does not produce a withdrawal bleed. Oestrogen may be used in the first year after the menopause and Kliovance may be used thereafter.
