Estrogen Pharmacological Information

Medication Information: Estrogen is a female hormone used to treat women's health disorders, including menopausal symptoms. If a person does not have a uterus due to surgery, they will experience symptoms such as menopause.

During menopause, the amount of female hormones decreases. Hormone therapy seeks to reduce some of the symptoms of this period, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness, by replacing these hormones. Hormone therapy also protects against osteoporosis, although there are better treatments for osteoporosis. Hormone therapy is mostly a combination of two female hormones, estrogen and progesterone. However, if a person does not have a uterus, he only needs estrogen treatment.

Different types of natural estrogens are used for hormone therapy in HRT products. These include conjugated estrogen, estradiol and estrone. HRT is available as tablets, ointments and skin gels. There are several types of brands for each of these types of HRTs. All of these brands inject a certain dose of estrogen into the blood.

If a person's uterus has not been removed, it is important to get a type of HRT that contains both estrogen and progesterone. A number of available brands are prescribed for women with uterine fibroids in the first few days of each month. See the relevant page for more information on estrogen and progesterone in HRT.
