One dose, (applicator filled to the mark), delivers a dose of 1g vaginal gel containing 50mcg of estriol.
Women who cannot take oral hormone replacement therapy or who prefer a topical treatment option can use Blissel Vaginal Gel Estriol as a safe and efficient treatment for menopausal symptoms of vaginal dryness and irritation. When using this product, it is crucial to adhere to your doctor’s instructions.

The recommended dose for the first 3 weeks of treatment is one applicator-dose per day, preferably before going to bed. After 3 weeks of use, your discomfort should have decreased, and the dose should be lowered. You may only need one dose twice a week.
Use the applicator to insert the gel in the vagina (it is recommended before going to bed).
Your doctor will aim to prescribe the lowest dose to treat your symptom for as short as necessary. Speak to your doctor if you think this dose is too strong or not strong enough.
The following instructions explain how the gel should be used.
The box contains two different elements consisting of the tube and the applicator (plunger and cannula).
- Remove the tube cap, turn it upside down and use the sharp point to pierce the seal on the neck of the tube. Do not use if seal is broken.
- Take out a cannula and the plunger. Insert the white plunger all the way into the cannula. Screw the cannula on the neck of tube.
- Squeeze the tube to fill the applicator with the gel up to the filling mark. The plunger will stop at the mark.
- Unscrew the cannula from the tube and replace the cap on the tube.
- To apply the gel, lie down, insert the end of the applicator deep into the vagina and slowly push the plunger all the way down
- After use, pull the plunger out of the cannula. Rinse both cannula and plunger well with warm and clean water so it can be reused for the next application.
