Use Estrandiol to reduce moderate to severe menopausal symptoms, to treat vulval and vaginal atrophy, treat certain cancers in special situations and prevent the thinning of bones.
Talk to your local physician or pharmacist. You and your doctor should reevaluate whether or not you still need estrogens at least every six months.
If you think you may be pregnant, do not use any form of estrogen-containing drug. Using Estrandiol while you are pregnant may cause your unborn child to have birth defects. Estrandiol does not prevent miscarriage.
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.
