Tibolone

Menopause can be a distressing time for women for many reasons, from ceasing their monthly cycle, to the range of symptoms which come along at this time including anxiety and mood swings, as well as hot flushes and insomnia.

Hormone replacement therapies, or HRT, can ease these symptoms by increasing the level of the declining hormone oestrogen and for many women, the daily treatment known as Tibolone is very effective when taken at this difficult time for helping not only with low moods, but also with the prevention of bone loss (osteoporosis) and lack of sex drive.

Can I buy Tibolone Online?

Tibolone is a prescription-only HRT treatment and you will be asked to fill in our online health questionnaire before being approved to purchase it. Once you have completed the assessment, our in-house doctors will confirm that this is the best treatment and that it will be safe for you to take. This is based on several factors including your age, the severity of your symptoms, any other medications you take and whether you suffer from, or have suffered from any other health issues. You may be invited for a free and confidential appointment to further discuss your menopausal issues and to ensure you are given the best treatment to ease your symptoms.

Once you have your prescription you will not be required to fill in the questionnaire for this product again in the future though you should have your treatment reviewed at least once a year. You will be sent your medication quickly and discreetly to your chosen address once purchased.

How effective is Tibolone?

Tibolone is known to have positive effects on certain tissues within the female body including the vagina, brain and bones. In most areas, Tibolone is considered to be as effective as hormone replacement treatments including in its ability to prevent osteoporosis, which is a side effect of the decreasing oestrogen levels, as well as its positive effect on sexual desire and function which is also affected during this time.

Tibolone has also been found, in studies to have as favourable an effect on the oestrogen withdrawal symptoms and to be as comparably effective as combined HRT’s.

Why choose Tibolone?

One of the side effects of HRT treatments is unscheduled bleeding and spotting which can occur during the menopause. Tibolone is known as the first ‘bleed free’ treatment and has been found, in studies, to have a lower occurrence of breakthrough bleeding than combined HRT’s.

Postmenopause can still come with its own issues including fatigue as well as a lack of motivation and well being. Tibolone was found to be a positive therapy in easing such symptoms.

What is contained in Tibolone?

The active ingredient is tibolone.

The inactive ingredients are:

  • potato starch
  • lactose monohydrate
  • ascorbyl palmitate
  • magnesium stearate.

If you have an allergy to lactose, be sure to let the doctor know this before starting this treatment.

How should I take Tibolone?

Once your periods have ceased for at least 12 months you can generally begin taking Tibolone right away. It is a tablet which must be taken once a day at the same time without a gap between packs to ensure your hormone levels remain even so you will not experience a reoccurrence of symptoms.

The tablets come in foil packs through which the pill can be pushed. It can be swallowed with water, with or without a meal. If you forget to take a dose and remember within 12 hours before the next, then wait to take the next pill. If you remember within the first 12 hours then take the tablet as soon as you can.

How does Tibolone work?

Tibolone does not have a naturally occurring hormone in it as HRT treatments do, but its synthetic ingredient instead mimics the combined effects of the sex hormones making it ideal for women who do not wish to use hormone replacement therapy, or else are not able to.

Once taken, Tibolone’s synthetic molecule begins to create the effects of oestrogen and progesterone in the body, easing the menopausal symptoms as the depleted oestrogen levels are replaced and increased.

How long can I take Tibolone for?

Continuous menopausal treatments are usually only prescribed to help relieve women during the menopause itself. As such it is considered a short term medication, often used for around 5 years, which is the average time for the menopause; but it can be taken for a longer or shorter time period depending on your situation and the benefits of the drug.

Most women will be prescribed Tiborone after a year has elapsed since their last period, and it is recommended that you take any new menopause treatment for at least 3 months to enable the benefits to kick in and the side effects to subside.

What are the side effects of Tibolone?

Most side effects of medication are mild enough that it does stop women from taking their menopause treatment and they usually only occur whilst the body gets used to the new medication. Some women will even find they do not experience any issues at all. The most common side effects can include:

  • stomach pains
  • pelvic pains
  • sore breasts
  • vaginal discharge and/or irritation
  • weight gain
Other Warnings to consider

Tibolone has similar risks to that found with HRTs which include the development of cancer and stroke. If you have any concerns, you can book a free and confidential appointment with our doctors at any time.

There are also several situations when Tibolone should not be used. They include, but are not limited to:

  • when pregnant or breastfeeding
  • if a patient has had, or currently suffers from breast cancer
  • when suffering from endometrial hyperplasia
  • if a patient has ever had, or presently has a blood clot (DVT)
  • if there are any issues with the liver including liver disease
