Estraderm Patches (estradiol or oestradiol) are used to supplement the body with estrogen in individuals, usually post-menopausal women, who are not producing sufficient levels of the hormone naturally. The product is most commonly used to treat:
Estraderm Patches provide several benefits over similar hormone therapies:
Note that women who still have a uterus should not use estrogen patches continuously; treatment should be paused every 3 weeks and a progestogen hormone taken instead, to minimize risk of developing endometrial cancer. Women who have had a hysterectomy do not need to interrupt treatment or take a progestogen.
Overview of Treatment
Estraderm Patches are most frequently used to manage or reverse the symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes, night sweats, difficulty sleeping or concentrating, painful intercourse, and loss of bone density. It may take 3 to 8 weeks of treatment before estrogen levels are elevated to such an extent that symptoms noticeably begin to improve. Estraderm Patches may need to be used continuously to keep symptoms at bay, though some women are able to stop treatment eventually.
Patients are usually started on the lowest possible dose, with some exceptions; women with very severe symptoms or men trying to develop female characteristics may be started on relatively high doses. Dosage may be increased after several weeks if lower doses are not producing significant results.
Administration of Estraderm Patches is straightforward:
Regular doctor checkups are strongly advised during the start of treatment and whenever dosage is increased or decreased, to ensure the medication is working properly and that no adverse effects are developing.
Some things to be aware of before starting treatment:
Estraderm Patches may interact with some other medications. Speak with a doctor or pharmacist about the exact combination of drugs being taken if unsure of safety.
Use of this product can cause complications when other major medical conditions are present; including, but not limited to, diabetes, asthma, epilepsy, high blood pressure, and a history of liver, kidney, gallbladder or heart issues. Speak with a doctor about possible risks, and what warning signs to be alert for, before using Estraderm Patches.

These are amazing, A true life saver. I am not sensitive to the adhesive either and I am sensitive to all adhesives! A clear patch that stays on, thank you KIWI!
The patch works very well for me so far. It has helped with night sweets and hot flashes. Noticed results towards the forth week of use. I tried the patch for one month and have not had any of the side effects described in the use of the patch. I have reordered the patch, because of the relief of my menopause symptoms.
THESE ARE THE BEST OF ALL!
