Patients who received previous therapy with estrogens should be carefully screened for the purpose of identifying endometrial hyperplasia.
With prolonged use of the drug, the examination should be carried out at least once a year.
In the first months of taking the drug, transient menstrual bleeding may appear. If these bleedings last a long time, it is necessary to perform diagnostic scraping or aspiration biopsy to exclude a possible malignant process of the endometrium.
Immediately discontinue therapy if the following side effects occur:
deep vein thrombosis, incl. thromboembolic complications;
-development of jaundice;
-appearance of migraine-like headache;
-Sudden deterioration or visual impairment;
-expressive increase in blood pressure.
Long-term therapy for the prevention of osteoporosis should be performed in those women who have a high risk of bone fracture. In patients who receive antihypertensive therapy in combination with hormonal therapy, it is necessary to regularly monitor blood pressure.
