Estraderm MX patches consists of oestradiol, a type of oestrogen, a female hormone that is produced by the ovaries. At menopause, the amount of oestrogen made by the ovaries declines and symptoms such as hot flashes (sudden, extreme feeling of warmth) and vaginal dryness can occur. Most women experience menopause naturally around the age of 50.
When an oestradiol patch is applied to your skin, it releases oestradiolinto your blood through the skin. Women who have not had a hysterectomy must also take another female hormone called progestin while they are taking this medication to prevent complications associated with taking oestrogen alone.
