Hertone is a new product developed by Schwabe. Clinical problems of the female sex are varied. Scientists have taken care to develop a non-toxic formulation with wide coverage. Inputs for the need of such a product covered from simple menstrual disturbance and dysmenorrhoea to complicated conditions like ovarian cysts (also called polycystic ovarian disease/syndrome or PCOD/PCOS) and uterine fibroids. Though genetics plays a role in developing these problems, modern researchers link it to the badly behaved hormones: estrogen, progesterone and others. Experts in the field explain how our modern-day lifestyle affects these hormones and ends up in many of these problems. As a result, symptoms of imbalanced hormones well before developing any of these specific disorders are felt. Subsequently, these problems develop after some time. Initially, there may be a slight disturbance in the menstrual cycle and the nature of pain during menses. These may be associated with general symptoms like sleeplessness, pedal oedema, poor appetite, weight gain, etc. Over a period of time, these develop as disorders of the female reproductive system. Hertone is a product which covers different stages of such disorders.
The disorders of the female reproductive system have been grouped
(a) menstrual disturbances,
(b) vaginal discharges, and
(c) growths & cysts.

Abnormal vaginal discharge such as leucorrhoea of different types is covered by Hertone.

The pain of ovarian origin is usually felt at ovarian regions or sides (iliac fossae). The product covers endometriosis, which is an abnormal endometrial growth on the ovary and tissues lining the pelvis.
