About Climara Pro®
What is Climara Pro used for?
Reduce moderate to severe hot flashes
Estrogens are hormones made by a woman's ovaries. The ovaries normally stop making estrogens when a woman is between 45 and 55 years old. This drop in body estrogen levels causes the "change of life" or menopause (the end of monthly menstrual periods). Sometimes, both ovaries are removed during an operation before natural menopause takes place. The sudden drop in estrogen levels causes "surgical menopause."
When the estrogen levels begin dropping, some women get very uncomfortable symptoms, such as feelings of warmth in the face, neck, and chest, or sudden strong feelings of heat and sweating ("hot flashes" or "hot flushes"). In some women, the symptoms are mild, and they will not need to take estrogens. In other women, symptoms can be more severe. You and your Healthcare Provider should talk regularly about whether or not you still need treatment with Climara Pro.
Help reduce your chances of getting osteoporosis
(thin weak bones)
If you use Climara Pro only to prevent osteoporosis due to menopause, talk with your Healthcare Provider about whether a different treatment or medicine without estrogens might be better for you. You and your Healthcare Provider should talk regularly about whether you still need treatment with Climara Pro.
