Myfembree will not shrink, get rid of, or cure uterine fibroids, but it will reduce heavy menstrual bleeding related to uterine fibroids. Taking Myfembree may help make your periods lighter.

Myfembree is a combination prescription medication containing relugolix, estradiol, and norethindrone, that may be used to control heavy menstrual bleeding due to uterine fibroids in premenopausal women over the age of 18. It should not be taken for more than 24 months.
