Your Estrogen Therapy has too...

Estrogen Therapy Designed for You

Today’s women are smart, well informed, and deserve to be the best they can be. And if the symptoms of menopause are negatively affecting your life, you have the choice to address them. Fortunately, there are many treatment options for you and your healthcare provider to consider—from lifestyle changes to hormone therapy (HT), including EstroGel 0.06% (estradiol gel).

  • EstroGel is the only non-patch transdermal estrogen therapy that provides relief of both moderate to severe hot flashes due to menopause and moderate to severe vaginal dryness, itching, and burning after menopause.1
  • EstroGel delivers a consistent, effective dose which helps a woman manage some of her menopausal symptoms more easily, day in and day out.
  • EstroGel is an FDA-approved, bioidentical estrogen therapy (ET) gel, which means the estrogen in EstroGel is similar to the estrogen your body produces naturally.1,2
  • Maybe that is why EstroGel is the #1 prescribed estrogen product in Europe and the #1 prescribed transdermal estrogen product in Canada.3

Talk with your healthcare provider today about estrogen therapy and if a prescription for EstroGel is right for you. 

WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT RISK INFORMATION I SHOULD KNOW ABOUT EstroGel® (AN ESTROGEN HORMONE)?

  • Estrogens increase the chance of getting cancer of the uterus (womb).

Report any unusual vaginal bleeding right away while you are using EstroGel. Vaginal bleeding after menopause may be a warning sign of cancer of the uterus (womb). Your healthcare provider should check any unusual vaginal bleeding to find the cause.

  • Do not use estrogens with or without progestins to prevent heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, or dementia.

Using estrogens, with or without progestins, may increase your chance of getting heart attacks, strokes, breast cancer, and blood clots.

Using estrogens, with or without progestins, may increase your risk of dementia, based on a study of women age 65 or older.  You and your healthcare provider should talk regularly about whether you still need treatment with EstroGel.

Do not start using EstroGel if you have unusual vaginal bleeding, currently have or have had certain cancers, had a stroke or heart attack in the past year, currently have or have had blood clots, currently have or have had liver problems, are allergic to EstroGel or any of its ingredients, or think you may be pregnant.

Tell your healthcare provider if you are breastfeeding, about all of your medical problems and medicines you take, and if you are going to have surgery or will be on bedrest.

Serious but less common side effects of estrogens include gallbladder disease, ovarian cancer, high blood pressure, liver problems, high blood sugar, and enlargement of benign tumors of the uterus (“fibroids”).

Common side effects of estrogens include headache, breast pain, irregular vaginal bleeding or spotting, stomach/abdominal cramps, bloating, nausea, vomiting, hair loss, fluid retention, and vaginal yeast infection.

If you would like more information, talk with your healthcare provider or see full Prescribing Information.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
