Premia 2.5 Continuous Tablets is a popular hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for women whose bodies are not producing enough oestrogen, like during menopause.
The tablets provide an oestrogen substitute, which can alleviate some of the symptoms of menopause, such as hot flushes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, headaches, mood swings, loss of energy and lack of concentration. As well as this, the tablets protect against endometrial (lining of the uterus) cancer, and can be recommended by doctors to prevent osteoporosis (thinning of the bones), which can lead to fractures in some women.
