Women’s health is of particular importance for us.

It is women who take care of the condition of entire societies and educate them, caring about their hygiene. They are also the most insightful observers of their families, thereby being able to send their relatives to specialists as soon as they notice any alarming symptoms. As a result, many diseases can be successfully diagnosed at an early stage. At the same time, women are the most demanding of patients, but also the best ambassadors for our products. Since the beginning of Gedeon Richter’s existence, we have been striving to ensure that our preparations satisfy the needs of women in the first place, believing that once these expectations are met, our social mission will be completed.

Gedeon Richter amongst the TOP 5 hormone producing companies

Gedeon Richter is amongst the top companies producing hormonal drugs, the company has several decades of unparalleled experience in this area.

The first steroid experiments were conducted by the company’s founder, Gedeon Richter himself. The quality of our preparations has been appreciated by millions of women worldwide, who place great trust in our products. These therapies are the historic domain of Gedeon Richter and the area of interest for the brand’s founders. The Gedeon Richter Group is best recognised in the field of women’s health protection. Our products support conscious family planning (hormonal contraceptive therapy).  Part of our offer is dedicated to couples trying for a baby and to future mothers who are preparing for their pregnancy. We also have a considerable number of products used in perimenopausal women. Hormone replacement therapy in the period when a woman undergoes physiological changes related to decreased hormonal activity of the ovaries, but is still professionally active, helps our patients to withstand this difficult stage of life. The products of Gedeon Richter Group are available in over 100 countries. The development of the gynaecological product range is one of the most crucial elements of the Gedeon Richter’s growth strategy. The acquisition of Swiss Preglem in 2010 has made it possible for company to develop innovative therapies for benign gynaecological conditions while buying the contraceptive product line of Germany’s Grünenthal GmbH provided a unique opportunity for Richter to expand its existing gynaecological business by establishing a presence in the West European market. The acquisition of Finox Holding, the Swiss based biotech company in 2016 allowed Gedeon Richter to establish its presence in the female fertility therapeutic area. Nevertheless, we persevere in further research on women’s health. During our research works, we are constantly driven by one goal: the commitment to offer high-quality products that satisfy as many of women’s health-related expectations as possible.

Medicines for women

Bearing in mind women’s health, we have been primarily concentrated on the fields of medicines concerning every single woman, namely gynaecology and endocrinology.

Therefore, we are involved in research and reproduction of preparations in the areas of contraception, management of uterine myomas, infertility and menopause. Our unique product is the preparation used in pre-operative treatment of moderate and severe uterine myomas in women of reproductive age. Usually, uterine myomas in women in this age group would necessitate hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus). The application of our medicinal product makes it possible to conduct a conserving surgery. In many cases, the size of the myoma is significantly reduced so the attending physician decides to resign from a surgical procedure.

Our therapies - our patients

I am writing to you to thank you with all my heart for your drug against uterine myomas. Three years ago I was diagnosed with myomas. The course of the disease was quite problematic for me, because the condition was accompanied by bleeding. In the beginning I thought those were issues with menstruation regularity. I attributed all this to my stressful job. When i reported to the gyneaecologist, I was shocked by the diagnosis. I had heard about myomas before, but i thought they affected elderly woman onely. The treatment proposed was also discouraging for me. The doctor planned to remove my uterus because the bleeding caused anaemia. During my diagnosis I was deeply desperate. At that time I was married for two years and ad no children. I treated the removal of my uterus as mutilation. Two years ago a different gynaecologist offered me the option of pharmacological treatment to limit the bleeding. I completed the therapy one and half years ago. Today I am writing to you because three days ago our little daugher Magdusia was born. I am so happy that I had to share this joy with you. Thank you very much!

I am a happy mum of Zosia for almost a year now. When I learned that I was pregnant, my gynaecologist recommended your product to me. At that time I did not know that increasing my intake of folic acid and vitamins was so important for my baby. The doctor explained to me that deficiencies of the most important elements and micronutrients in my diet can cause foetal developmental disorders – primarily abnormal development of the nervous system called a neural tube defect. Since then I began taking the Folik Mama dietary supplement and continued it throughout my pregnancy. Now that I am still breastfeeding my daughter, I also use your product. I recommend it to all my friends who are expecting a baby and who are still breastfeeding. And to those who are just planning a pregnancy I recommend taking Folik. I believe that thanks to this product my baby developed properly and Zosia was born beautiful and healthy.
