Vaginal dryness caused by the menopause Oestriol Ovestin Vaginal Cream

Uses
Ovestin Vaginal Cream (Oestriol) is a hormonal medicine used for HRT (hormone replacement therapy) in postmenopausal women. It works by replacing the hormones in the body. Generally, problems affecting the vagina which are caused by insufficient oestrogen levels (dryness, infection and itching leading to pain during intercourse) as well as helping with the healing process after vaginal surgery has taken place are treated with it.

The active ingredient in this cream (sometimes called E3 or estriol) is an oestrogen that is normally produced by the body. However, depleted hormone levels can often occur as a result of the menopause. In cases such as this, treatment with oestrogen hormones may be recommended, so as to prevent and relieve vaginal dryness and reduce the risk of vaginal infections, urinary incontinence and recurrent cystitis.

Dosage and Administration
Ovestin Vaginal Cream (Oestriol) is provided with a special plunger so as to allow it to be inserted into the vagina. Women whose womb and ovaries have already been removed, or who have never undergone HRT may be told by their doctor that they can begin treatment immediately, whereas those that are changing from a different type of HRT (in which they have a period) may need to wait for a period of one week before commencing.

Doctors generally instruct women treating vaginal problems to apply one applicator of cream per day for the initial 2 to 3 weeks of treatment, after which the dosage is reduced to a single applicator twice each week. Usually, the lowest possible dosage that provides relief is used, and in some case, patients may be instructed to stop use in order to assess whether or not treatment is still required. Follow the directions provide by your doctor with regard to filling the applicator and inserting it into the vagina.

Side effects
Side effects of Ovestin Vaginal Cream (Oestriol) include:

  • Headache
  • Vaginal irritation
  • Swollen or tender breasts
  • Vaginal discharge or spotting
  • Problems affecting the gall bladder

Ensure that your doctor is kept informed of any side effects that occur. Serious side effects which will require immediate medical attention include rises in blood pressure, headaches which are similar to migraine, symptoms of a blood clot and any other serious reactions.

Precautions
Hormone replacement therapy is usually not suitable for women who are affected or who have a history of coronary artery disease.
