Estrogel contains estradiol. It is a prescription medication used to improve symptoms of menopause. Estrogel may be prescribed alongside other medications to improve menopause treatment results. This medication belongs to the drug class of estrogen derivatives. Estrogel is a type of hormone replacement therapy and comes with certain risks. Estrogel, either used alone or with progestin, should not be used to prevent cardiovascular disease or dementia. Speak to your doctor about whether Estrogel is right for you.
Estradiol is a white powder that is clear, colorless, and odorless when it is dry. Estrogel contains 0.06 percent estradiol mixed with a gel base. It is used to treat moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms (symptoms related to the constriction or dilation of the blood vessels) that occurs during menopause. Estrogel is also used to treat moderate to severe vulvar and vaginal atrophy caused by menopause. Estrogel should not be prescribed for postmenopausal women with a uterus as doing so increases the risk of endometrial cancer. Prescribing Estrogel with progestin may reduce this risk.
