What is Ogen taken for?

Filed under: Uncategorized — robertprice @ 2:15 pm

Ogen is prescribed for conditions due to menopause, vulval or vaginal atrophy, and preventing osteoporosis (brittle bones). It is a female hormone and works by replacing the natural estrogens in women who can no longer produce enough estrogen on their own.

Estrogen is a hormone that is produced by the ovaries. Once menopause is reached, the ovaries produce less estrogen and progesterone, and symptoms of menopause can occur. This medication is an estrogen replacement hormone used to manage symptoms of menopause such as abnormal uterine bleeding, hot flashes, sweating, and chills. It is used to help prevent osteoporosis (weakened bones) and to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.
