Estogel (estradiol) is a topical estrogen-replacement therapy, predominantly used by menopausal women. Less commonly this product may be used in other low-estrogen scenarios, and sometime in either gender to help treat some types of cancer.
Estogel is very similar---including in name---to EstroGel. It's basically the same product, with the difference being manufacturing location and possibly some inactive ingredients.
Both Estogel and EstroGel are estrogen-only or estrogen-alone treatments. Women who have an intact uterus will most likely want to also take a progestogen along with estrogen supplements, to reduce risk of uterine and ovarian cancer. Women who have had their uterus removed do not need to worry about a progestogen.
Estogel comes in a metered-dose pump. After priming the pump---which consists of pressing the pump down three times and discarding any gel that comes out---it will consistently deliver the exact same amount of medication with each pump depression.
Standard treatment is:
The most common dosage strength is a single pump, though two pumps is not unusual and three or more are not unheard of. With a single pump administration is just once a day; with more than one dosage may be once a day or a doctor may advise twice-per-day application.
Things to avoid with Estogel:
The majority of women notice improvements after six weeks of treatment, often much sooner. If no improvements are noticeable after six weeks of using Estogel, a doctor should be consulted. It may be that dosage needs to be raised, or another type of estrogen treatment may be tried.
For most women Estogel works fine, alleviating symptoms of:
Estogel may alleviate other menopause symptoms, such as anxiety or depression, or reducing the risk of osteoporosis. It has not been approved for such symptoms, however.
Who Should Not Take Estogel
Estogel may be inadvisable in patients who:
Patients who have the above should definitely speak with a doctor prior to starting treatment; a doctor can better assess the situation and fully explain all risks associated with Estogel use.
Likewise women who have only vaginal issues with menopause should not rely on Estogel to treat them; more direct application methods, such as creams or suppositories directly applied to the vagina, are preferred. If other menopause symptoms are also bothersome, however, Estogel is a good choice.
Side effects from Estogel are unusual but do happen on occasion. Fortunately most are mild and transient, meaning they stop occurring as the body adjusts to treatment. Most commonly reported are:
The above are not cause for concern unless severe enough to be disruptive.
Rarely more serious side effects develop. If experiencing the following a doctor should be consulted:
Very rarely severe side effects happen, which warrant emergency medical attention, such as a heart attack. Other adverse effects---such as liver impairment---can develop into something very serious, but are screened for at doctor checkups and can usually be managed with relative ease if caught early. All patients taking Estogel should be sure to attend all doctor checkups.
Also double-check with a doctor or pharmacist before taking other medications; many can interact with Estogel.
