Ingredients

  • ESTRADIOL 2mg

How do I take/use this medicine?

Use Estradiol Vaginal exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not use more or less than instructed by your doctor.

Estradiol Vaginal may be given in various forms, such as a gel, cream, pessary (vaginal tablet) or ring.

If you have been given the GEL or CREAM, follow these steps:
1. Wash your hands thoroughly.
2. Open the tube by puncturing the metal seal with the pointed tip of the cap.
3. Screw the end of the applicator securely onto the tube.
4. Slowly squeeze the tube such that the medication fills the applicator completely.
5. The applicator plunger will stop moving once the applicator is full. Do not overfill by pushing it past this point.
6. Unscrew the applicator.
7. Lie on your back with both knees bent and legs apart.
8. Hold the applicator at the middle portion.
9. Gently insert the applicator into the vagina. Insert only as far as it will comfortably go.
10. Slowly press the applicator plunger until it stops. This will deposit the medication into the vagina.
11. Gently withdraw the applicator.

If you have been given the PESSARY, follow these steps:
1. Wash your hands thoroughly.
2. Lie on your back with both knees bent and legs apart.
3. Remove the wrapper from the pessary (and the applicator, if this is given).
4. If an applicator is supplied, fix the pessary into the hole at the end of the applicator.
5. Gently insert the pessary into the vagina, either with your fingers or the applicator.
6. Insert only as far as it will comfortably go.
7. If you are using an applicator, press the plunger to release the pessary then remove the applicator.

If you have been given the RING, your doctor may insert it for you or you may do it yourself as follows:
1. Wash your hands thoroughly.
2. Lie on your back with both knees bent and legs apart.
3. Take the ring out from the pouch.
4. Hold the ring between your thumb and index finger.
5. Press the ring such that your thumb and index finger meet.
6. Gently insert the compressed ring into the vagina.
7. Gently push it in as far as you can reach with your fingers. The ring should be in the upper third of the vagina. When it has been placed correctly, you should not be able to feel it.
8. If you feel any discomfort, use your finger to push it in further. Do not worry that the ring may get stuck or lost, as it cannot move beyond the cervix.
9. Once inserted, the ring should remain in place for 90 days.
10. You may remove it yourself or the doctor may remove it for you. To remove it on your own, hook your finger around the ring and gently pull it out.

What should I take note of while using/taking this medicine?

Inform your doctor if you have any of these conditions or any other illnesses:

- fits (epilepsy)
- asthma
- migraine
- kidney disease
- high blood pressure
- depression
- diabetes
- gallstones
- severe headache or migraine
- an ear problem called otosclerosis which causes ringing or buzzing in the ears and loss of hearing
- systemic lupus erythematosus (commonly known as lupus or SLE)
- vaginal infections

If you are going for any blood tests, inform your doctor that you are using Estradiol Vaginal as it can interfere with certain laboratory tests.

Your doctor will also check your personal and family medical history and carry out a physical examination before starting you on Estradiol. He will also discuss with you the possible risk of breast cancer and blood clots while being treated with Estradiol.

Keep all appointments with your doctor so that he can monitor your response to Estradiol and any side effects that there may be.

When should I not use this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you suffer from any of these conditions:

- circulation problems or blood clots
- liver disease

- recent stroke
- cancer of the breast, womb or ovaries
- womb problems, such as thickening of the womb lining
- unexplained or unusual vaginal bleeding
- a blood condition called porphyria

Why do I need this medicine?

Estradiol belongs to a group of female hormones known as estrogens.

Estradiol is used as hormone replacement therapy (HRT) in menopausal women. It helps to relieve vaginal symptoms caused by a shortage of estrogen in the body, such as vaginal itch, irritation or dryness.

Estradiol Vaginal only relieves the vaginal symptoms of menopause. It does not relieve other symptoms such as hot flushes and mood changes.

What side effects could I experience?

Some common side effects of Estradiol Vaginal include headache, nausea, stomach pain and discomfort, stomach wind, bloating or water retention, vaginal discharge or discomfort and breast tenderness.

Alert your doctor if any of these side effects are severe or refuse to go away.

Some side effects may be serious although they are not common. Alert your doctor quickly if you experience:

- swelling, pain or tenderness in the calf of your legs
- difficulty breathing or chest discomfort
- unexplained severe headache or migraine
- changes in your vision
- numbness of the arms or legs or over one side of your body
- breast lumps, dimples in the skin around the breast or changes in the nipple

Alert your doctor if you experience any other side effects with the use of Estradiol Vaginal.

How should I store this medicine?

Store in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.

Can I take/use this with other medicines?

Always inform your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any other medicines, including herbal tonics, supplements and medicines that you buy without a prescription.

Let your doctor know if you are using any other vaginal preparations, such as a vaginal douche or other medication that is applied in the vagina.
