General Information on Estradiol Valerate Dosage

Some considerations for people using estradiol valerate include the following:
  • Estradiol valerate is injected into a muscle, usually once a month (although it can be used as frequently as once a week for prostate cancer).
  • Your healthcare provider will administer the estradiol valerate injection, as it must be injected into the gluteal muscle (a muscle of the buttocks).
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your estradiol valerate dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
