Buy Oestrogel

Oestrogel is a type of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) used to relieve postmenopausal symptoms such as hot flushes. Oestrogel can also be used for the prevention of osteoporosis (fragile bones), which affects some women after the menopause. 

 

How Oestrogel works

The active ingredient in Oestrogel is oestradiol, which is a type of the female sex hormone oestrogen. Levels of oestrogen naturally drop during menopause, so taking a treatment like estradiol replaces these lost hormones and helps to relieve symptoms associated with menopause. This type of treatment is referred to as hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

 

Directions 

Always take this medicine exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. ­If you have never used any other HRT medicines or you are switching to Oestrogel from a period-free HRT product, you can start using Oestrogel on any convenient day. If you are currently using another type of HRT where you have a period, finish your current medicine pack before you start using Oestrogel.

 

Before using your new Pump Pack for the first time, you need to prepare it for use as follows:

 

  • Remove the cap from the canister.
  • Press the plunger down a few times until the gel comes out.
  • Do not use this first dose of gel from your Pump Pack. This dose should be discarded.

 

Apply the gel once a day, either in the morning or evening. Try to use the gel at about the same time each day. Your doctor will prescribe the lowest dose for the shortest time to treat your symptoms. One pump is equal to one measure. The usual daily dose is 2 measures (i.e. 2 pumps) of gel. In this case, the Pump Pack will last four weeks.

 

Make sure that your hands and the skin where you are going to apply the gel are clean, dry and unbroken. Remove the canister cap to reveal the plunger. Hold the Oestrogel Pump Pack in one hand and place your other hand under the spout, ready to collect the gel. Push the plunger down firmly. This will dispense one measure of the gel. Apply the gel to either  the outer arm and shoulder of both arms, or the mid-inner thigh of both legs. Do not apply on or near the breasts, or near the genital area. If your doctor has prescribed 2 measures of gel, spread 1 measure over each outer arm and shoulder, or each mid-inner thigh. If 4 measures of gel have been prescribed, spread 2 measures over each outer arm and shoulder or each mid-inner thigh. Leave to dry for 5 minutes before covering with clothes. Wash hands with soap and water after applying the gel. 

 

Side effects 

Like all medicines, Oestrogel can cause side effects, but these won’t affect everyone. Side effects include: 

 

  • Painful periods
  • Menstrual periods which are heavier or last longer than usual
  • Abnormal or irregular bleeding
  • White or yellow vaginal discharge
  • Mood swings
  • Migraine
  • Verigo
  • Wind
  • Increase in the volume of the uterus 
  • Vaginal yeast infection
  • Feeling of weakness

 

For more information about potential side effects, refer to the patient information leaflet. If you experience any side effects, including any not included in the patient information leaflet, you can report them using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme

 

Serious side effects

 

The following diseases are reported more often in women using HRT medicines which circulate in the blood compared to women not using HRT. These risks apply less to vaginally administered treatments such as Oestrogel:

 

  • Ovarian cancer
  • Blood clots in the veins of the legs or lungs
  • Stroke
  • Probable memory loss if HRT is started over the age of 65

 

For more detailed information about these risks, refer to the patient information leaflet.

  • Fluid retention due to heart or kidney problems.

 

Stop using Oestrogel and see a doctor immediately if you notice any of the following:
