DIVINA is a combined hormone preparation for two cycles of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). It contains white and blue tablets in a box. The tablets contain estrogen and progestagen.
Estrogen and progesterone production in the body begins to decrease with menopause. Divina replaces these hormones and prevents or improves the symptoms caused by the deficiency of these hormones. Divina mimics the menstrual cycle, so that the initial estrogen period (11 days; white tablets) is followed by a combined estrogen-progesterone period (10 days; blue tablets) and withdrawal bleeding usually occurs in the next week.
Based on these, Divina;
