Tibolone is used for relieving post-menopausal symptoms and prevention of osteoporosis.
Tibolone is a substance that has favourable effects on the different tissues in our body such as the brain, vagina and bone.
It should only be used in postmenopausal women with at least 12 months of since their last natural period.
Studies have shown that tibolone may be associated with a slight increased risk of both stroke and endometrial cancer. It may also be associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Regularly check your breast for any changes such as dimpling of the skin, changes in the nipple, or any lumps you can see or feel. The risk of breast cancer returns to normal within a few years after stopping treatment.
If you have any concerns, please discuss with your doctor. Your doctor will consider the benefits versus its risks when they prescribed the treatment to ensure it remains suitable for you.
