What is Estradiol?

Estradiol is a female sex hormone necessary for many processes in the body. Estradiol vaginal products release estrogen that is absorbed directly through the skin of the vaginal wall.

This medication is also prescribed for symptomatic treatment of the usual symptoms associated with menopause (hot flushes, vaginal dryness, etc.), prevention of bone fractures associated with osteoporosis, reduction of the risk of heart attacks and strokes, and dysfunctional (excessive and painful) uterine bleeding.

The vaginal cream is prescribed for vaginal or vulvar atrophy associated with menopause.
