About EstroGel

EstroGel contains an estrogen hormone called Estradiol (Estradiol-17 Beta) and is prescribed as part of a hormone therapy treatment during menopause. This is a time when your hormone levels decrease as your child-bearing years begin to diminish. Symptoms of night sweats, hot flushes, and mood swings affect many women during menopause as well as the risk of osteoporosis.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is not a long-term solution. Once your symptoms have decreased, your doctor may recommend you only take medication to prevent the thinning of your bones to keep osteoporosis from interfering with your daily life.

Works as a Transdermal Hormone

EstroGel is a low-dose estrogen replacement so you are less likely to be affected by side effects if you need to take it longer than other estrogen formulas that are available. EstroGel is delivered to your skin as a non-patch transdermal hormone. You apply it topically to one arm, once a day, and it dries odorless so you are ready to face the day without menopause slowing you down.

Conditions Treated by EstroGel

As women near their mid to late 40’s, they’ll notice a change in their menstrual cycles. By the time they reach 50 years of age, their ovaries simply shut down. As estrogen production drops, the menopausal symptoms appear with insomnia, vaginal dryness, and incontinence being among the list.

For women that have not had a hysterectomy, your doctor may recommend taking progesterone as well. Menopause usually lasts a matter of 2-3 years, so HRT may not be required. However, osteoporosis can still remain a threat so talk to your doctor about vitamins for strong bones or Rx medication that can help to slow down the absorption of old bone growth to reduce the risk of a fracture.

Before You Use EstroGel

Make certain you are not pregnant or breast feeding before you start applying EstroGel. Discuss your medical history and any conditions or allergies you have that could interfere with using EstroGel. If you have unusual vaginal bleeding, are going to have a scheduled surgery, or have asthma, diabetes, migraine headaches, or other medical problems, let your doctor know before using Estrogel. Provide information regarding other OTC or Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal remedies and vitamin supplements so your doctor can determine if there may be negative interactions when combined with EstroGel.

Proper Use of EstroGel

Do not allow others, especially children, to apply EstroGel to your arm as it is absorbed through the skin. Wash your hand thoroughly after applying and allow treated area to dry for about 5 minutes before getting dressed. Ask your doctor about the safety of eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while using EstroGel as it may cause dangerous side effects. Do not depend on HRT to prevent the risk of heart disease; instead you can adopt a change in your lifestyle and stop smoking, be more active, lose weight, and eat healthier! Using Estrogel may increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, some types of cancers and memory loss.
