The Importance of Understanding HRT Ingredients for Women with Dietary Restrictions

For some women with dietary restrictions, it is vital to ask questions about the product sources and animal derivatives in their HRT.

Annie Hawkins did a fantastic summary in the last edition of Post Reproductive Health – the journal of the British Menopause Society.

A Comprehensive Guide to Animal-Free HRT Options

If you weren’t sure, this is the list of all the commonly used HRTs that contain no animal-derived ingredients and are suitable for all:

  • Oestrogel Sandrena
  • Estradot Evorel Femseven
  • Lenzetto
  • Androfeme Tostran Testogel Testim
  • Estring Ovestin

A note on our language

Throughout this website, we use the term women when describing people who experience hormonal symptoms. However, we acknowledge not only those who identify as women require access to menopause and hormone health information. For example, some trans men, non-binary people, intersex people or people with variations in sex characteristics may also experience menopausal symptoms and PMS/PME or PMDD, and we warmly welcome everyone who needs this support in our clinic.
