Balance your estrogen with low-dose estrogen cream
Low dose .01% estradiol vaginal cream is prescribed for Hormone Therapy (HT) to treat menopausal symptoms, vaginal dryness, low libido, pain during sex and imbalanced vaginal pH associated with vaginal infections.
Advantages of topical estrogen over prescription oral estrogen include quicker absorption and targeted therapy. Targeted therapy limits circulation throughout the body. This reduces the chance of interactions with other medications and impact to other parts of the body.
What does estrogen do?
Estrogen's primary role in women is to regulate the reproductive system. It's also responsible for female secondary sexual characteristics that differentiate females from males.
What causes low estrogen?
Estrogen naturally decreases in women as she approaches menopause. Before menopause, estrogen ranges from 15 to 350 picograms per milliliter (pg/mL). In post-menopausal women, estrogen falls below 30 pg/mL. Estrogen can also decline in women of any age. Childbirth, stress and illness and age are among the causes.
Symptoms of low estrogen include hot flashes, moodiness, and night sweats. Lesser known but often just as common symptoms include vaginal dryness, low libido, weakening of bones and thinning of the skin. Estrogen is prescribed to counteract and prevent these conditions.
The natural decline of estrogen in women coincides with three major stages of the reproductive cycle: perimenopause, menopause, and postmenopause. The perimenopause stage is the 10 years leading up to menopause. Menopause is defined as the stage when a woman does not have her period for 12 consecutive months. Postmenopause is the years following.
