What is Oestrogel prescribed to treat?

Oestrogel is prescribed to treat symptoms of the menopause. The menopause describes a natural change that occurs in all women at some time in their lives. It’s where hormone levels change, leading to the end of the menstrual cycle and the ability to get pregnant.

It usually starts between the mid 40s and mid 50s and it can last for a few years. Some women can get premature menopause. This is quite rare but it can occur in women as young as their 20s, with one in 100 women noticing symptoms before the age of 40.

Symptoms of the menopause include hot flushes, insomnia, vaginal dryness, anxiety, foggy headedness and low sex drive. Oestrogel contains oestrogen, which helps manage hormone levels and deal with these symptoms.

Oestrogel HRT – a different way of managing your symptoms

Oestrogel is a highly effective way of managing your menopausal symptoms. Oestrogel is different from many menopause treatments because it’s a gel that’s applied to the skin, rather than a patch or tablet.

That means all you have to do is remember to rub it on the skin at regular intervals. This is particularly good if you have any difficulties swallowing tablets.

How does oestrogen work during menopause?

The active ingredient in Oestrogel is a synthetic form of oestrogen, a naturally occurring hormone. So what does oestrogen do to help manage the symptoms of the menopause? During the menopause, oestrogen levels slowly start to fall, leading to the symptoms described above. By replacing these hormones, Oestrogel helps to relieve menopausal symptoms.

If you’ve had a hysterectomy then you can use oestrogel on its own. If you’ve still got your womb then you’ll need an additional progesterone. You can get this from a Mirena coil (or similar) if you have one fitted, or from a gel or tablet that you take for several days each month.

Combined HRT is likely to be better for you if you haven’t had a hysterectomy.

How to use Oestrogel

Oestrogel should be used as instructed by our clinician.

When you’re using the pump pack for the first time, you’ll need to press the plunger down a few times for the gel to come out. The first gel that comes out should not be used, simply discard it.

Two pumps of the device used at the same time every day is the typical starting dosage. The pack will last for four weeks if two measures are prescribed and two weeks if four measures are needed.

Pump the gel onto your hand and rub it into a patch of skin that’s dry, clean and unbroken (not on cuts or grazes). You should wash the area you’re going to apply the gel and dry it before use.

The shoulder, upper arms or legs are the best places to apply the gel. Never apply it to your breasts or genitals. You should also make sure that you rub the gel fully into the skin across the largest area possible for each dose.

Leave the gel to dry for five minutes before covering your skin with clothing, and wash your hands thoroughly after use.

What should I do if I forget to use Oestrogel gel?

If you forget to use Oestrogel, and it’s less than 12 hours after the scheduled dose, you should apply it as soon as you remember. If it’s 12 hours after the scheduled dose, skip it and carry on as usual.
Never take double the dose to make up for a missed one. Not only is there no advantage to doing this but you can greatly increase your chances of experiencing side effects.

Are there different Oestrogel doses?

Oestrogel 0.06% is the standard dosage strength, but it can be increased by using more than the usual two pumps, once daily. At the start of treatment, it’s likely you’ll begin with the lowest dose. If it doesn’t work as it should for you, our clinician can increase the dose. You shouldn’t make any adjustments to your treatment yourself without having had a chat with our clinician first.

How we source info.

When we present you with stats, data, opinion or a consensus, we’ll tell you where this came from. And we’ll only present data as clinically reliable if it’s come from a reputable source, such as a state or government-funded health body, a peer-reviewed medical journal, or a recognised analytics or data body. Read more in our editorial policy.

FAQ: Oestrogel

Have something specific you want to know? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

Are there different forms of HRT?

Answer:
Yes. HRT comes in many forms, from combination therapies, which contain more than one hormone, to single hormone treatments, such as Oestrogel. There are also continuous treatments, which are usually prescribed for women who still have their period, and sequential therapies, prescribed for women who are postmenopausal.

As you can see, there are many options that can be prescribed for various stages of the menopause and for your individual needs. Our clinician can talk you through these options to find the right dose and type of therapy, as well as the right dosage.

Oestrogel and Utrogestan: why are they used together?

Answer:
If you’ve not had a hysterectomy, you’ll need to take a progesterone hormone to ensure that your risk of cancer is not increased. One of the most commonly prescribed progesterone treatments is Utrogestan, although it isn’t the only type of this hormone that can be prescribed with Oestrogel.

Once our clinician knows more about your health, they’ll be able to advise you on which treatments or combination of treatments will work best for you.

Can I buy the Oestrogel Pump Pack over the counter?

Answer:
Hormone replacement therapies are only available with a prescription, so you can’t buy them over the counter. Our clinician will need to monitor their use at the start of your treatment to see if they’re working for you, and they can advise you on any side effects you may experience.

As there are so many types of HRT, not to mention dosages and forms that they come in, getting advice on which one is right for you from our clinician is very important.

Is oestrogen safe for me to take?

Answer:
You shouldn’t take oestrogen on its own unless you’ve had a hysterectomy, as it can increase the risk of womb cancer. A hysterectomy is when the womb has been removed entirely.

For this reason, if you’ve not had a hysterectomy, you’ll be offered a different treatment that contains two hormones. These are known as combined treatments.
Or, you can take a separate progestogen alongside Oestrogel. Oestrogen and progestogen can also be found in the combined contraceptive pill.

Why should I buy Oestrogel online with Treated?

Answer:
Trying to identify the right HRT treatment for you, when there are so many options, can be a bit overwhelming. We’re here to help you pick the right medication just for you. Tell us about your health and our clinical team can advise you on treatments that are safe and suitable. From there, you can choose which one you’d like, and how frequently you’d like us to send it to you.

If you’ve got any questions about your medication, you can message our clinicians at any point using your Treated account. They’ll reach out to you on a regular basis to find out how you’re getting on with your treatment. You can change, pause or cancel your subscription at any point.
