Product Description

Active Drug Information

Oestrogel gel contains estradiol, which comes in an absorptive hydroalcoholic gel base. This synthetic hormone is a clear and colorless gel. Estradiol is a white crystalline powder, with an empirical formula C18H24O2 and molecular weight 272.39. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved estradiol in 1998. It has been approved to reduce hot flashes and to treat menopausal symptoms in and around the vaginal tract.

Mechanism of Action

Oestrogel (estradiol) gel offers systemic estrogen therapy by giving the body enough estradiol, a hormone secreted by the ovaries. Estrogen is responsible for the development and maintenance of secondary sexual characteristics in women. Circulating estrogens regulate the pituitary production of the luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicular-stimulating hormone. Estradiol helps to reduce vaginal symptoms in postmenopausal women.

    I used to suffer a lot from hot flushes. It has been seven months since my last period. My gynecologist prescribed med Oestrogel. It is a Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). I was relieved of hot flushes, the typical symptoms that occur in post-menopausal women. This medication improves symptoms post-menopause. I saved a lot of money purchasing this medication at Clickpharma.
