Frequently Asked Questions

What are Livial tablets?

Livial tablets are a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) containing tibolone, this medicine is used to relieve symptoms occurring after menopause. Tibolone is a substance that has favourable effects on different tissues in the body, such as brain, vagina and bone. This medicine is used in postmenopausal women with at least 12 months (1 year) since their last natural period.

Common symptoms of menopause include:

  • hot flushes
  • night sweats
  • mood swings
  • vaginal dryness
  • reduced sex drive


You can buy Livial tablets online from trusted prescribers such as e-Surgery or from your local GP. If you choose to buy Livial tablets from e-Surgery we will require you to fill out a quick 2-minute health questionnaire to ensure the medication is right for you.

How do Livial tablets work?

Livial is different from other HRT. Instead of actual hormones (such as oestrogen and progestogen) it contains tibolone. Your body breaks down tibolone to make hormones. Its effects and benefits are similar to combined HRT.

What is Tibolone?

Tibolone is a synthetic steroid in Livial. Taken as an oral treatment, Tibolone breaks down into three separate ingredients once inside the body. These ingredients act in a similar way to the hormones progestogene, testosterone and oestrogen. This ensures that the usual hormone balance is maintained, reducing many of the bothersome symptoms of menopause that can develop after menopause.

Is there any reason I would not be able to take Livial tablets?

You can find more details in the Livial tablet patient information leaflet.

Talk your doctor before taking Livial:

  • If you have or have ever had breast cancer, or if you are suspected of having it
  • If you have cancer which is sensitive to oestrogens, such as cancer of the womb lining (endometrium), or if you are suspected of having it
  • If you have any unexplained vaginal bleeding
  • If you have excessive thickening of the womb lining (endometrial hyperplasia) that is not being treated.
  • If you have or have ever had a blood clot in a vein (thrombosis), such as in the legs (deep venous thrombosis) or the lungs (pulmonary embolism)
  • If you have a blood clotting disorder (such as protein C, protein S, or antithrombin deficiency)
  • If you have or recently have had a disease caused by blood clots in the arteries, such as a heart attack, stroke or angina
  • If you have or have ever had a liver disease and your liver function tests have not returned to normal
  • If you have a rare blood problem called porphyria which is passed down in families (inherited)
  • If you are allergic to tibolone or any of the other ingredients of this medicine
  • If you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant.
  • If you are breastfeeding.

Will I have a period if I take Livial tablets?

You may have irregular bleeding or drops of blood (spotting) during the first 3-6 months of taking Livial tablets. But if the bleeding or spotting carries on for more than the first 6 months, starts after you have been taking Livial for more than 6 months, or carries on even after youve stopped taking Livial tablets speak to your doctor.
