Vagifem is a vaginal tablet containing the active ingredient estradiol, a type of female sex hormone called oestrogen. Vagifem is a type of treatment called local vaginal hormone replacement therapy (HRT), used to relieve vaginal dryness and irritation associated with menopause. Vaginal dryness occurs during menopause due to a drop in the levels of oestrogen – this type of medicine works by replacing the lost oestrogen.
How to use Vagifem
Always take Vagifem exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor/pharmacist has told you. Vagifem is for vaginal use only – each tablet comes preloaded in a single-use intravaginal applicator. For the initial dose, use one vaginal tablet each day for the first 2 weeks of treatment. For the maintenance dose, use one vaginal tablet twice a week, leaving 3 or 4 days between each dose. If you forget a dose, use the medicine as soon as you remember. Do not use a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.
How does estradiol work?
The active ingredient is estradiol, which is a type of the female sex hormone oestrogen. Levels of oestrogen naturally drop during menopause, so taking a treatment like estradiol replaces these lost hormones and helps to relieve symptoms associated with menopause. This type of treatment is referred to as hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
