What is Livial used for?

Livial tablets, once metabolised, have oestrogenic effects on bone, vaginal and breast tissue, whereas it has progestogen activity on the endometrium (lining of the uterus) and androgenic effects (like testosterone) in the brain and liver; these actions help restore the hormonal balance to relieve menopausal symptoms like vaginal atrophy, loss of bone density and osteoporosis, as well as other symptoms, such as reducing hot flushes and improved libido.
