Hormonal malfunctions and disorders caused by illness or age can occur suddenly and catch a woman by surprise. They cause a lot of anxiety and unpleasant symptoms, not only preventing women from enjoying their sex life with a partner, but also affecting their ability to work, emotions and well-being.
According to numerous reviews of women and doctors about “Angelik” (a hormonal drug that can eliminate unpleasant manifestations), good results can be achieved using this tool if used correctly.
What is this drug? What can be the recommendations regarding its use? And, most importantly, what are the real reviews about “Angelik” women taking the drug? Let's find out.
A little bit about the composition
According to doctors, “Angelik” consists of two main active ingredients - drospirenone (2 milligrams) and estradiol (1 milligram). These two hormones play an important role in a woman’s body. Any deviations from the norm of these substances can adversely affect the regularity of the menstruation cycle, the ability to give birth and the general condition of the body.
For example, drospirenone is responsible for the accumulation of fluid, and estradiol reduces the negative symptoms of menopause and serves as a prevention of osteoporosis after the onset of menopause. Below we discuss in more detail the actions of both hormones.
Additional components of the tablets are lactose monohydrate, ordinary and pregelatinized corn starch, povidone K25, macrogol 600, hypromellose, magnesium stereate and microdoses of talc, titanium dioxide, and iron dye. According to reviews of women and doctors about “Angelik”, these substances can enhance the effect of the main components and improve the patient’s well-being.
But what is the scope of active substances? Let's find out.
Two words about the hormone estradiol
As we learned above, this substance is the main component of Angelique. Reviews of women taking the drug show that this hormone, produced by the ovaries, adrenal glands and the placenta, is necessary for the satisfactory functioning of the reproductive system and its organs (vagina, uterus, mammary glands).
Also, as already mentioned, estradiol lowers cholesterol, thereby being a preventive measure for serious diseases such as atherosclerosis, hypertension, heart attack, stroke, and diabetes.
Moreover, this substance serves to prevent the occurrence of osteoporosis, and also improves the appearance - it slows down the appearance of wrinkles.
Two words about drospirenone
This hormone, which is a synthetic progestogen, is an addition to estradiol, since the latter can cause uterine oncology. Drospirenone neutralizes this negative manifestation and removes sodium and excess water from the patient's body. Thus, hormone removes puffiness and prevents weight gain. Reviews of women taking the drug “Angelik” are almost completely consistent with this statement. Therefore, we can absolutely say that patients who are watching their figure during the treatment with this drug are not at risk of excessive weight gain. However, we will discuss this below.
Now let's talk about how this tool is available.
According to the reviews of women taking the drug, “Angelik” is a round, convex on both sides of a tablet of gray-pink color, coated with a thin shell. Each of the miraculous pills from one side is embossed with a regular hexagon, in which two symbols are enclosed - DL.
The hormone product is produced by the German pharmaceutical company Bayer in cardboard packs, one or three blisters in each. That is, in a package of 28 or 84 tablets.
The main analogue
The drug we are interested in has one analogue that is completely similar to it in composition and spectrum of action. This is “Angelique Micro”. Reviews of women and doctors about these drugs indicate that they differ from each other only in the dosage of the main components. The analogue of the drug “Angelik” includes 0.5 milligrams of estradiol and 0.25 milligrams of drospirenone. Both tablets are manufactured by the same company.
According to the reviews of women taking the drug “Angelik Micro”, its tablets are yellow, but their effect is similar to how the usual “Angelik” works.
When an analogue is prescribed
In what cases may the agent “Angelik Micro” be prescribed? Reviews of women taking the drug indicate that this analogue is prescribed by doctors in cases where the unpleasant symptoms of menopause are not very pronounced and not very critical. Moreover, such a small dosage of hormones helps doctors to choose the most accurate and effective schedule for taking the drug. These two advantages of the analogue are also indicated by expert reviews.
The essence of the means of action
According to reviews, “Angelik” replenishes the reserves of hormones that lose their properties or are completely depleted during menopause or hypogonadism.
Thanks to this, all negative manifestations caused by female diseases are normalized and the patient’s emotional, psychological and physical well-being improves. Moreover, thanks to its components, the drug promotes rapid fat metabolism and lowering blood cholesterol.
When is this drug prescribed?
In which cases hormone intake is warranted

As you can see, the tool is really useful and effective.
However, remember that self-medication, that is, prescribing a pharmacological agent yourself, is by no means possible! Only the attending physician should do this. He also writes the dosage and schedule. Sometimes, as mentioned above, a specialist may consider it appropriate to prescribe the drug “Angelik Micro”.
