What Is Activella used for?
The medication Activella is used for the treatment of moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms (uncomfortable feelings of heat, flushing, and sweating) that occur in women after menopause due to lower estrogen levels. It is also used to treat vulvar and vaginal atrophy (changes on the vagina or external genital organs due to low estrogen levels associated with menopause), with symptoms such as itching, burning, dryness in or around the vagina, difficulty or burning during urination and pain while having sex. The estradiol in Activella is an estrogen hormone and helps to relieve menopausal symptoms. Activella replaces the estrogen in the body which decreases naturally after menopause. The progestin hormone called norethindrone acetate (NETA) helps to reduce the risk of cancer of the uterus. This medication should be used only under the supervision of a doctor with regular follow-ups at least once a year to find out the side effects associated with its use. Your visit may include a blood pressure check, a pap smear, pelvic exam and a mammogram.
