How it Works

About Ovestin

What is Ovestin cream?

Ovestin cream is a medication that is used as a ‘hormone replacement therapy’ to treat the symptoms of menopause. It is used with an applicator that applies 1 0.5g dose of the cream at a time.

How to use Ovestin cream

Use the information in your patient information leaflet to apply Ovestin to your vagina.

Applying the cream

Use the applicator to apply the cream to your vagina, ideally before bed. Fill the applicator to the ‘ring mark’ to apply a correctly sized dose. Then follow these steps:

  • Use the top of the cap to piece the foil seal underneath
  • Screw the applicator onto the tube
  • Squeeze the tube to fill the applicator up to the ring mark
  • Remove the applicator and put the cap back on the tube
  • Lie down and use the applicator to apply cream deep into your vagina. Push the plunger all the way to apply the whole dose

Pull the plunger out of the applicator and wash both in hot soap water. Do not use detergents or boiling water and rinse thoroughly afterwards.

If you forget a dose for up to 12 hours you can just take it when you remember. Any longer than this and you should skip the dose and wait for your next scheduled dose application. Never take 2 doses on the same day.
