Bijuva (Estradiol Hemihydrate/Progesterone) is a prescription medicine that contains two kinds of hormones, an estrogen and a progestogen. Bijuva is used after menopause to reduce moderate to severe hot flashes in women who has not had her uterus removed. 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). When estrogen levels begin dropping, some women get very uncomfortable symptoms, such as feelings of warmth in the face, neck, and chest, or sudden intense 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. Take Bijuva exactly as your healthcare provider tells you to take it. Take Bijuva by mouth each evening with food. Estrogens should be used at the lowest dose possible for your treatment and only as long as needed. You and your healthcare provider should talk regularly (for example, every 3 to 6 months) about whether you still need treatment with Bijuva.
