What is Sandrena Gel?

Sandrena Gel is a smooth-applying HRT containing estradiol, which is a bioidentical form of the female hormone oestrogen. Sandrena Gel works like other hormone replacement therapies, like Oestrogel, when applied topically can replace the deficiency of estrogen as it depletes during menopause. Sandrena Gel aids in relief of menopausal symptoms such as: hot flushes, low mood, headaches, vaginal dryness and irritation, difficulty sleeping, night sweats and reduced sex drive.

How does Sandrena work?

After menopause or after the removal of parts of the female reproductive system, the oestrogen levels in the body begin to decrease which causes unpleasant symptoms to occur within the body.When this gel is applied, it is able to evaporate into the skin quickly, allowing the estradiol to be absorbed into the blood stream. This results in the increase of oestrogel in the body and the reduction of menopausal symptoms.

What are the benefits of Sandrena Gel? 

Sandrena is able to improve the quality of life within women going through menopause due to its help in the reduction of menopausal symptoms. It is easy to apply as it is a topical, fast drying, alcohol based gel.

How do I use Sandrena Gel and what is the dosage? 

Sandrena comes in sachets of 0.5 mg estradiol in 0.5 g of gel, or in sachets of 1 mg estradiol in 1g of gel.
Use the amount of Sandrena gel that your doctor has prescribed. Your doctor will aim to prescribe the lowest dose to treat your symptom for as short as necessary. Speak to your doctor if you think this dose is too strong or not strong enough.

The recommended dose is between 0.5 mg and 1.5 mg of estradiol a day.Use the following number of 0.5 g or 1 g sachets depending on the dose, and the pack size prescribed by your doctor:For a 0.5 mg daily dose: Use one 0.5 g sachet.For a 1 mg daily dose: There are two options. Use one 1 g sachet or use two 0.5 g sachets.

For a 1.5 mg daily dose: There are two options. Use three 0.5 g sachets or use one 0.5 g sachet with one 1 g sachet.

If you are also taking progestagen tablets, take them as your doctor has told you. You will normally have a withdrawal bleed after each course of progestagen.

How to apply the gel
Sandrena should be rubbed gently on dry and clean skin.
It should not be swallowed.
