Important Information about Estradiol
Taking Estradiol (Estrace, Climara, Climara Forte, Vagifem, E2, Progynon Depot, Progynova) for a long time may increase the risk of breast, ovarian, or uterine cancer. Discuss this with your doctor about your specific risks.
You may be required to have regular physical checkups and mammograms while taking this medication. Do not forget to also self examine your breasts regularly for lumps. You may be monitored for your progress and condition every 3 to 6 months to ensure that Estradiol is functioning properly in you. Taking progestin while taking estradiol may decrease your risk of uterine cancer. If you have not had a hysterectomy (uterus removal surgery), you may be prescribed progestin along with estradiol.
Do not take estradiol if you have unusual and abnormal vaginal bleeding, liver disease, breast or uterine cancer, hormone related cancer, an incident of heart attack or stroke in the recent past, if you are allergic to it, if you are pregnant, or if you have ever had a blood clot. Hormonal medications can increase risk of blood clots, stroke, or a heart attack, especially if you are suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or triglycerides, if you are overweight, or if you smoke.
Estradiol is classified as pregnancy category X drug which means this medication can harm an unborn baby or cause birth defects in the newborn if the mother takes it during her pregnancy. Estradiol is strictly not recommended for pregnant women. Notify your doctor in advance if you are pregnant or become pregnant while taking estradiol. Estradiol can pass into breast milk and harm a nursing baby. It may also slow breast milk production. Hence this medication is also not recommended if you are breast feeding.
Before taking Estradiol
Before taking Estradiol (Estrace, Climara, Climara Forte, Vagifem, Progynon Depot, Progynova), take all precautions as mentioned above and discuss about them and all points mentioned above with your doctor. Inform your doctor in advance if you have any of these conditions: lupus, porphyria, endometriosis, gallbladder disease, hypothyroidism, asthma, migraines, epilepsy, calcium deficiency, or if you have had a hysterectomy. Your doctor will decide if it is safe for you to take estradiol on top of these conditions.
How should I take Estradiol?
You should take estradiol exactly as directed by your doctor. All medications come with a patient leaflet with complete instructions and details. Refer it for any doubts. Do not alter the course of the medication in any way (do not take more or less than the prescribed dosage). Also do not take it after the period for which the medication was prescribed is over. You may be prescribed a course of progestin along with estradiol. Always follow your doctor’s directions and advice.
