Oestrogel (Estradiol 0.06%) Gel 80g is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). It contains the female hormone Oestrogen-Estradiol. It is used in postmenopausal women with at least 6 months since their last natural period to relieve the symptoms occurring after menopause.
The amount of oestrogen generated by a woman's body decreases throughout menopause. This may result in symptoms like "hot flushes," or a warm face, neck, and chest. These symptoms are reduced by oestrogel after menopause.
Each dose contains 750 micrograms of oestrogen - 64 doses per pack. You control the dose - starting at one per day and increasing if needed.
If you still have your womb then you must use a progesterone-containing medicine/patch/implant with this gel.
