Elleste Solo MX contains the active ingredient estradiol hemihydrate, which is a form of the female sex hormone called oestrogen.
On the road leading to menopause, women normally start producing less and less oestrogen, causing oestrogen levels to decline. Deteriorating levels of oestrogen can cause some distressing symptoms, such as irregular periods, hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings and vaginal dryness or itching.
In this case, Elleste Solo MX works as a supplement to replace the declining levels of oestrogen in the body, which will then have a knock on affect, reducing distressing symptoms and making them more tolerable. This method is known as Hormone Replacement Therapy. The Hormone Replacement Therapy treatment should be reviewed once a year by your doctor and it usually only provides a short-term relief from the distressing symptoms you experience during menopause.
Elleste Solo MX patches are a consistent, oestrogen-only form of HRT. These convenient patches release estradiol through the skin directly into the bloodstream at a steady rate and are made to be changed twice a week. The patch can be worn for three to four days, after which a replacement is required.
For women that do not like taking tablets Elleste Solo MX patch provides them with an alternative in the form of a patch. As the menopause approaches, your ovaries will gradually produce fewer hormones. This can cause a number of distressing symptoms to develop, such as vaginal dryness and irritation, night sweats and mood swings. Elleste Solo MX patches work by replacing the loss of hormones caused by menopause and help reduce symptoms.
Elleste Solo MX patch is an oestrogen–only HRT and contains estradiol, the synthetic form of oestrogen. Elleste Solo MX patches replace the lost natural oestrogen by passing estradiol from the patch into the body via the skin. The supplement of oestrogen into the body is reached a few hours after the patch is applied to the skin, and lasts for a few days, after which it should be changed. The Elleste Solo patch should be changed twice weekly continuously.
This HRT can be used when you start menopause, which for most women is between 40-60 years of age. However, Elleste Solo MX patches are oestrogen-only HRTs, and are therefore not suitable for women who have not had a hysterectomy due to the risk of cancer to the womb. If you still have a uterus, a progestogen should be included in this therapy. This HRT is also not suitable if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the medication. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a history of breast or womb cancer, unexplained vaginal bleeding, liver problems, porphyria, blood clots, heart attacks or angina or have an untreated endometrial hyperplasia, then it is recommended that you do not take this HRT.
For the treatment of menopause, the lowest effective dose for the shortest time is usually advised. For women who are menstruating, this HRT should be taken on the first day of bleeding. However, if your cycle has ceased or has become infrequent, treatment can begin at any time. When taking this HRT, one patch should be applied twice weekly, starting within five days of onset of menstruation. A progestogen should be included for 12-14 days of each cycle if you still have a uterus.
