Estrogens (ES-troe-jenz) are hormones produced by the body. Among other things, estrogens help develop and maintain female organs.
When your body is in short supply of this hormone, replacing it can ease uncomfortable changes that occur in the vagina, vulva (female genitals), and urethra (part of the urinary system). Conditions that are treated with vaginal estrogens include a genital skin condition (vulvar atrophy), inflammation of the vagina (atrophic vaginitis), and inflammation of the urethra (atrophic urethritis).
Estrogens work partly by increasing a normal clear discharge from the vagina and making the vulva and urethra healthy. Using or applying an estrogen relieves or lessens:
Dryness and soreness in the vagina
Itching, redness, or soreness of the vulva
Feeling an urge to urinate more often then is needed or experiencing pain while urinating
Pain during sexual intercourse
When used vaginally or on the skin, most estrogens are absorbed into the bloodstream and cause some, but not all, of the same effects as when they are taken by mouth. Estrogens used vaginally at very low doses for treating local problems of the genitals and urinary system will not protect against osteoporosis or stop the hot flushes caused by menopause.

Be sure to ask your doctor if you have any questions.
Estradiol Warnings and Side Effects

Estradiol may cause dizziness, lightheadedness, headache, stomach upset, bloating, or nausea. These effects should disappear as your body adjusts to the medication. Notify your doctor if you experience: severe depression, calf pain, sudden severe headache, chest pain, shortness of breath, lumps in the breast, weakness or tingling in the arms or legs, yellowing of the eyes or skin, changes in vaginal bleeding (spotting, breakthrough bleeding, prolonged or complete stoppage of bleeding), stomach pain, skin rash. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
Estradiol Missed Dose
If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Store Estradiol at room temperature between 59 and 86 degrees F (between 15 and 30 degrees C) away from moisture and sunlight. Do not store Estradiol in the bathroom.
If Estradiol overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately. Symptoms of overdose may include nausea/vomiting or stoppage of periods.
