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.
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.
You can find more details in the Livial tablet patient information leaflet.
Talk your doctor before taking Livial:
You may have irregular bleeding or drops of blood (spotting) during the first 3-6 months of taking Livial tablets.
