What is Climara (Estradiol) prescribed for?

Menopause occurs when a woman’s body goes through changes and when she stops having menstrual periods and it marks the end of the women’s reproductive years. A woman is born with all of her eggs, which are stored in her ovaries. The ovaries also make the hormones estrogen and progesterone, which control her period (menstruation) and the release of eggs (ovulation). Menopause happens when the ovaries no longer release an egg every month and menstruation stops.

Climara is a medication developed for women, to help treat moderate to severe hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause such as; vaginal dryness, itching, and burning. All of which are caused by the low amounts of estrogen. This medication may also be used to treat certain conditions in women before they reach menopause, if their ovaries do not make enough estrogens naturally, and it will help prevent osteoporosis.
