Information on Estradiol Vaginal Cream

Postmenopausal women who are experiencing vaginal-related problems may find relief with estradiol vaginal cream (Estrace® Vaginal Cream). This product comes with a special applicator so it can be inserted into the vagina. Unlike other types of hormone replacement therapy, estradiol vaginal cream is usually used daily to start, but most women can eventually cut back to just three times a week.
Safety information on estradiol vaginal cream should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment so that you are aware of exactly when and how to use this product, possible side effects, signs of an overdose, and more.
