Estradot

Estradot is a form of HRT that’s prescribed to women during the menopause. If a woman is struggling with the symptoms of menopause, HRT is often recommended as long as there aren’t any underlying health conditions which might make it risky.

Estradot contains a synthetic version of oestrogen, making it a great option for women who no longer have a womb. However, if you do have a womb, you’ll need to take a form of progestogen alongside Estradot to reduce the increased risk of womb cancer.

Estradot is applied directly to the skin, making it a fantastic option for women who struggle to swallow pills. It should be changed twice a week and is worn on the lower abdomen.

Always consult your doctor before starting HRT, and always read the patient information leaflet that comes with your treatment to make sure you know exactly how to use it.

Is HRT dangerous?

HRT has previously received some bad press due to some of the risks it carries, such as an increased likelihood of some cancers. However, more recent research shows that this risk is only very slightly elevated in women that are taking HRT.

Before starting treatment, women have to have a consultation with their doctor to decide whether HRT is the best option for them to manage their symptoms, and whether it’s safe for them to take it when looking at their personal and family health history.

HRT is only dangerous if a patient already has an increased risk of certain cancers, or if a woman isn’t regularly monitored whilst taking the medication. For many women, it’s an effective and safe treatment for the relief of embarrassing symptoms that can affect her quality of life.

How do you use Estradot?

Estradot is an adhesive patch that should be secured to the lower abdomen, below the waistline. It’s important to attach it somewhere that won’t be irritated by the waistline of clothes, as this could cause the patch to come loose.

It should be applied twice a week, so you should wear each patch for 3-4 days before swapping it over for a new one.

Never apply a patch to the same area twice within a 7-day period – when you’re ready to change patches, place the new one in a different area.

Estradot can be worn in water. As long as it’s been applied correctly, it shouldn’t affect the patch and it shouldn’t come loose. However, if you find that the patch does peel off in the bath, shower or swimming pool, you can just shake the excess water off and re-apply it to clean, dry skin. If the patch doesn’t stick, just apply a new one and change it again on your normal change day.

Can I use estradot?

As estradot only contains oestrogen, it’s actually most suitable for women who’ve previously had a hysterectomy, as they don’t require progestogen.

For most women, taking oestrogen on its own can increase the risk of womb cancer, hence why combined HRT is the most highly recommended form of treatment, as this means that women are taking both oestrogen and progestogen, lowering (but not eliminating) the risk of womb cancer as a result of HRT.

There are certain groups of people that should avoid using HRT wherever possible, though. These include those who:

  • Have currently got or have previously had breast cancer
  • Have currently got or have previously had any cancers that are sensitive to oestrogens
  • Have had unexplained vaginal bleeding
  • Have excessive thickening of the womb lining
  • Have currently got or have previously had a blood clot in a vein
  • Have a blood clotting disorder
  • Have ever had a heart attack or stroke
  • Have angina
  • Have liver disease
  • Have porphyria
  • Might be pregnant

If you fall into any of the above categories, it’s probably best if you avoid using any form of HRT unless you’ve been told otherwise by a doctor. You should also talk to your GP about whether HRT is suitable for you if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Fibroids
  • Emdometriosis
  • Endometrial hyperplasia
  • Increased risk of thrombosis
  • High risk or family history of oestrogen sensitive cancers
  • High blood pressure
  • Liver disorder
  • Diabetes
  • Gallstones
  • Migraines or severe headaches
  • A disease that affects the immune system
  • Epilepsy
  • Asthma
  • High cholesterol

Due to the risks associated with HRT, your doctor will have a discussion with you if you have any of the above conditions to determine the safest option for you. It might be that you aren’t able to use HRT, but rest assured that this is for your safety.

What are the side effects of estradot?

As it is a hormonal replacement therapy, Estradot can cause some side effects. Some of them are perfectly normal to experience and they should certainly outweigh the symptoms of the menopause, but should you experience any of the following side effects to a distressing degree, please stop using Estradot and consult your doctor:

  • Breast cancer
  • Abnormal growth or cancer of the womb lining
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Blood clots
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Memory loss (if started over the age of 65)
  • Headache
  • Local skin irritation (dryness, redness, eczema etc)
  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Burning sensation at site of application
  • Discomfort
  • Inflammation
  • Hives
  • Menstrual pain
  • Breast tension
  • Depression
  • Mood changes
  • GI symptoms (indigestion, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, bloating etc)
  • Breast enlargement
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Pain (in the arms, legs, back etc)
  • Weight changes
  • Nausea/vomiting

Estradot may also cause an allergic reaction. If you experience symptoms of this, please remove the patch and contact your doctor or hospital immediately.

Will Estradot stop me from getting pregnant?

No, estradot isn’t a contraceptive. If you’re still having periods and don’t want to get pregnant, you should use contraceptive methods such as condoms. Although oestrogen is used in hormonal birth control pills, the dose used in estradot isn’t sufficient for pregnancy prevention.

Can you overdose on estradot?

As estradot is a transdermal therapy it’s unlikely that you’ll overdose, but the symptoms to be aware of are tender breasts and vaginal bleeding. If you use Estradot as directed, you shouldn’t be at risk of an oestrogen overdose.

Are there any alternatives to Estradot?

Many HRT medicines are available, often in the form of tablets or capsules. If you have a womb, you might want to look at combined HRT options so that you’ll also be getting a dose of progestogen.

Estradot is a good alternative for women who haven’t got a womb or who find it difficult to swallow pills., but it isn’t the only HRT option out there.
