Continuous combined HRT combines oestrogen and progestogen in 28 tablets which are taken over the whole 28-day cycle. As a result, menstrual bleeding stops completely after some months of treatment. This is the preferred therapy for women who suffer from menopausal symptoms and who do not want to bleed any longer. An international survey among showed that 30% of the women in the survey who were receiving HRT and almost half of those not treated with HRT were not aware that a bleed-free treatment is available. But the majority of them would actually prefer a bleed-free therapy. A continuous combined HRT product is designed for the early initiation for an effective bleed-free treatment of menopausal women and is one of the options for osteoporosis prevention.
