What is Elleste Solo?
Elleste Solo is a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) medicine that contains the female hormone oestrogen. HRT medications are used to relieve the symptoms associated with menopause that occur when oestrogen levels begin to drop.
How does it work?
Elleste Solo contains the ingredient estradiol hemihydrate, which works to provide the body with the oestrogen that it is no longer producing. This will then lessen the menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes.
