About Utrogestan (Progesterone) 100 mg Capsules

Utrogestan 100mg is a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that is used alongside oestrogen-based HRT to help alleviate some of the symptoms of the menopause.

The active ingredient in Utrogestan 100mg is progesterone.

Each capsule of Utrogestan 100 mg contains 100 mg of micronised progesterone; this is derived from plants and is identical in structure to the hormone produced by your body.

Taking oestrogen alone can cause the lining of the uterus (womb) to build up and cause problems. Taking Utrogestan 100mg as well as oestrogen causes the lining of the womb to be shed, preventing issues caused by build-up of the womb lining. As a result, you may get some bleeding at the end of each treatment cycle, similar to a menstrual period.

What is Utrogestan 100mg used for?

Utrogestan is indicated for adjunctive use with oestrogen in post-menopausal women with an intact uterus, as hormone replacement therapy (HRT).


It is recommended that you have an appointment with your doctor to review your treatment after 3 months of using HRT, to check how well it is working and how your body is responding. After which, an annual appointment may be sufficient, unless you experience any problems with your treatment in which case you should consult your doctor straight away.
