Descriptions


Estradiol vaginal ring and tablet are used to treat changes in and around the vagina (such as vaginal dryness, itching, and burning) caused by low estrogen levels or menopause.

Estradiol vaginal ring is also used to treat moderate to severe hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause or low amounts of estrogen. The hormone from the vaginal ring is absorbed through your vagina. It works by preventing symptoms, such as feelings of warmth in the face, neck, and chest, or sudden strong feelings of heat and sweating (hot flashes) in women during menopause.
