Enjuvia Hormone Replacement Medicine
Available by prescription only, Enjuvia® (conjugated estrogens) is a type of hormone replacement therapy. It helps relieve symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness, by replacing the estrogen the ovaries no longer produce. This product contains a mixture of synthetic (manufactured) estrogens. Unlike many other estrogen products, it does not contain any hormones produced by horses.
Enjuvia is taken once a day and is sold in the form of a tablet. It is generally well tolerated. However, side effects are possible and may include nausea, breast pain, and headaches, among others.
