How does it work ?
Estradiol is a naturally occurring form of the
main female sex hormone, oestrogen. It is responsible for the
development and maintenance of the reproductive system and secondary
sexual characteristics in women. Certain parts of the body such
as the vagina, bones and breasts rely on oestrogens to function
normally. When the levels of oestrogen are low, these tissues
can slowly degenerate.
Oestrogen (in this case in the form of estradiol)
is supplemented to counteract the detrimental effects experienced
with low levels of oestrogen (particularly at menopause). This
is known as hormone replacement therapy (HRT). HRT is used to
help reduce the symptoms of menopause such as hot flushes, mood
swings and vaginal dryness. It may also be used as long term treatment
to prevent bone loss (osteoporosis) that is experienced after
HRT is usually given in conjunction with another
hormone called progesterone which acts to prevent overstimulation
of the lining of the womb (endometrium) by oestrogen. This preparation
contains estradiol alone and should therefore only be used as
a single medicine in women who have had their womb removed surgically
(hysterectomy). Women who still have their wombs should also receive
a progesterone replacement in conjunction with this medicine.
This preparation is implanted under the skin
to release oestrogen slowly into the body over a period of months.
How should Estrofem, Estrace (Estradiol)
Take Estrofem exactly as prescribed. Do not share it with anyone else.
If you are taking calcium supplements as a part
of the treatment to help prevent brittle bones, check with your
doctor about how much to take.
You should take a few moments to read the patient package insert
provided with your prescription.
If you are using Estrofem vaginal cream, apply
it as follows:
Remove cap from tube.
Screw nozzle end of applicator onto tube.
Gently squeeze tube from the bottom to force sufficient cream
into the barrel to provide the prescribed dose. Use the marked
stopping points on the applicator as a guide.
Unscrew applicator from tube.
Lie on back with knees drawn up. Gently insert applicator deeply
into the vagina and press plunger downward to its original position.
To cleanse the applicator, pull the plunger to remove it from
the barrel, then wash with mild soap and warm water. Do not boil
or use hot water.
In women with an intact uterus, long-term use of oestrogen therapy will require the addition of a progestogen to prevent the risk of over-growth (hyperplasia) and possible cancer of the lining of the womb (endometrium).
It is important to be aware that all women taking HRT appear to have a small increase in the risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer, compared with women who do not take HRT. However, this risk must be weighed against the benefits of taking HRT, such as prevention of osteoporosis. You should discuss the risks and benefits of HRT with your doctor before starting treatment. Women on HRT are advised to have regular breast examinations and mammograms, and to practice breast self-examination.
This medicine may interfere with some laboratory tests such as thyroid function tests.
Women with a history of irregular brown patches of skin on the face and elsewhere (chloasma) during pregnancy or when taking oral contraceptives should avoid exposure to the sun while using this medicine.

the oral contraceptive pill (also containing oestrogens), and
not specifically for the oestrogens used in hormone replacement
dosages. The following are therefore only theoretical interactions
rather than proven effects.

tolerance for glucose. This may effect the dosage of insulin or
oral antidiabetic medicines that are required by people with diabetes.
