Estriol cream is a medication use to treat menopause. It is used as part of hormone replacement therapy treatment to control post-menopausal symptoms like atrophic vaginitis.
You use Estriol by applying 5ml of the cream at a time to your vagina. The applicator that comes with Estriol will help you get the right dose of 0.5g at a time. The applicator needs to be inserted high up inside your vagina so the cream can be applied properly. It’s recommended you do this in the evening.
- Use the top of the cap to piece the metal seal on the top of the tube
- Make sure the plunger is inserted properly into the applicator
- Screw the applicator to the top of the tube
- Squeeze the tube to fill the applicator
- Remove the applicator and put the cap back on the tube
- Lie with your knees up and bent. Keeps your legs spread apart
- Insert the open end of the applicator high into your vagina and push the plunger down firmly to apply all of the cream
