Selective oestrogen receptor modulators are a class of medicines which work by interfering with the action of oestrogen receptors. Cells in the body which use oestrogen, such as those in the vagina and the brain, have oestrogen receptors which allow them to interact with oestrogen in the blood
stream. Selective oestrogen receptor modulators interfere with these interactions, and are used to treat hormone related conditions such as menopausal symptoms.


For more information about the symptoms of menopause and how they can be treated, see Menopause.
