Estradot patches is a combined form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), used to treat symptoms of the menopause. Most HRT treatments involve daily tablets. However, Estradot is a patch which is placed on the skin and changed twice per week. It releases two active ingredients, which emulate the two female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone. It is a convenient alternative for patients who prefer not to swallow tablets every day.

Estradot is a continuous combined treatment, which does not involve a regular period. For this reason, Estradot patch is suited for women who have already reached the menopause but still suffer from distressing symptoms.

What is Estradot?

Estradot is a Hormone Replacement Treatment (HRT) that contains the female hormone estrogen. Estradot is used in postmenopausal women when at least 12 months have passed since their last natural period. Estradot comes as a patch that is applied to the skin.

How does it work?

The Estradot active ingredient, synthetic 17ß-estradiol, is chemically and biologically identical to estradiol endogenous human. Substitutes loss of estrogen production in menopausal women and relieves menopausal symptoms.

What are the benefits of taking it?

With age, a woman's ovaries gradually decrease estrogen production. This causes a hormonal imbalance, which in turn can lead to bothersome physical and psychological symptoms, including:

  • Hot flushes
  • Excessive sweating and night sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Humor changes
  • Dryness in the vagina, mouth, and eyes
  • Osteoporosis (decrease in bone mass and density).

By restoring the body's hormonal balance, Estradot uses include reducing or preventing menopausal symptoms. Since the patches contain the only estrogen, they are best suited for women who have had a hysterectomy. Women who have not had a hysterectomy should also be prescribed a progestogen medication to be taken together with this medication, to reduce the risk of endometrial cancer

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have doubts.

Your doctor will try to prescribe the lowest dose to treat your symptom for the shortest possible time. Talk to your doctor if you think this dose is too strong or insufficient.

How long should you use Estradot

It is important that you use the lowest effective dose possible and only as long as necessary.

Periodically, you should discuss with your doctor the possible risks and benefits associated with using Estradot, and if you still need this treatment.

When to start treatment

If you are not currently using any hormone replacement therapy (patches or tablets), or if you have been using a combined continuous hormone replacement therapy product (in which estrogen and progestogen are administered every day without interruption), you can start using Estradot in any day.

If you are going to switch from sequential or cyclical hormone replacement therapy (in which progestogen is added for 12-14 days of the cycle), you should start using Estradot the day after completing your previous regimen.

When to apply Estradot

For the HRT patch dosage, Each Estradot patch should be changed twice a week (every 3 to 4 days). It is best to always change it on the same two days of the week (for example Monday and Thursday). The Estradot pack contains a calendar-control on the back that will help you remember your pattern. Mark the two-day-a-week guideline you want to follow. Always change the patch on both days of the week that you marked.

You must carry the Estradot patch continuously until it is time to change it for a new patch.

Any adhesive that remains on the skin can be easily removed by friction. If this happens, apply a new Estradot patch to another area of ​​the skin.

Women who have had their uterus removed

The Estradot patch should be applied continuously without interruption. The addition of another type of hormone called progestin is not necessary unless there is the growth of the endometrium outside the uterus (endometriosis).

How to apply Estradot

Each patch is individually sealed in a protective envelope. Open the envelope through the slot and remove the patch (do not use scissors to open the envelope as they may damage the patch).

A protective sheet covers the sticky side of the patch. This sheet should be peeled off before applying the patch to the skin. Apply the patch immediately after opening the envelope and removing the protective foil.

Take the patch with the protective foil facing you. Peel off half of the protective layer and discard it. Try to avoid touching the sticky side of the patch with your fingers.

Take the other half of the protective sheet, apply the adhesive part of the patch to a dry area of ​​the lower abdomen. Press the adhesive part against the skin so that it adheres properly, especially on the edges. Remove the other part of the protective sheet.

Hold the straight edge of the protective sheet and peel it off the patch.

Press the adhesive part against the skin so that it adheres correctly. Press the patch firmly into the skin with the palm of your hand for at least 10 seconds.

Make sure the patch is properly placed on the skin and run your fingers along the edges to check for good contact between the patch and the skin.
