Estring Medication - Uses & Side Effects

The name of your medicine is Estring Vaginal ring. The ring is made up of silicone elastomers known as Q7-4735 A and B and silicone fluid called SFD 119. It contains 2mg estradiol hemihydrate Ph Eur and barium sulphate Ph Eur. Estradiol is a form of estrogen, a female sex hormone the regulates many processes in the body.

Estring Dosage

  • One ring to be inserted into the upper third of the vagina, to be worn continuously for 3 months, and then replaced by a new ring.
  • The estradiol from the ring acts locally to eliminate or reduce symptoms and signs of post-menopausal urogenital estrogen deficiency.
  • ESTRING therapy restores vaginal pH to premenopausal values and returns the histology and physiology of the vaginal and urethral epithelia to premenopausal states.

Uses of Estring

  • This medication is a female hormone and is usually given to women who no longer produce the proper amount.
  • It is used to treat vaginal and urinary symptoms associated with menopause.
  • Estradiol vaginal also reduces urgency or irritation of urination.
  • Estradiol vaginal (local) may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.
  • Estring can also be used for postmenopausal urinary problems like urinary urgency and difficulty urinating. So start taking Estring only after getting Estring prescribing information about its usage.

Side Effects of Estring

  • Vaginal discomfort, increased vaginal discharge, dizziness, light-headedness, headache, stomach upset, bloating, nausea, weight changes, increased/decreased interest in sex, and breast tenderness may occur.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: mental/mood changes (e.g., severe depression, memory loss), vision changes (e.g., change in contact lens fit, loss of vision), swelling of hands or feet, unusual vaginal discharge/itching/odor, yellowing eyes or skin.
  • Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Warnings and precautions before taking Estring:

  • Estrogens have been reported to increase the chance of womb (endometrial) cancer in women who have been through menopause, especially in women with a uterus who receive estrogen-only hormone therapy.

Drug Interaction:-

  • No interactions have been reported. But if you are taking Estring with certain other drugs, then the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered.
  • So it is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Estring with other vaginally administered drugs.
Overdose

Overdose is for estrogens in general: excessive doses of estrogens may result in nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, headache, dizziness and general malaise.
