Senshio is a prescription treatment and is only available on prescription from your healthcare professional
Senshio is used to treat women with moderate to severe post-menopausal symptoms in and outside the vagina, such as itching, dryness, burning and pain during sex (dyspareunia) if local oestrogen therapy is not suitable. This is known as vulvar and vaginal atrophy. It is caused by a lowering in the levels of the female hormone oestrogen in your body. When this happens, the vaginal walls can become thinner. This happens naturally after menopause (post-menopause).
Senshio works in a similar way to some of the helpful effects of oestrogen, helping to improve these symptoms and the underlying causes of vulvar and vaginal atrophy.
Senshio contains the active substance ospemifene. Ospemifene belongs to a group of medicines that do not contain hormones called Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERMs).
