How to use Estriol cream

Estriol cream comes with an applicator, which is inserted into the vagina, usually at bedtime. The usual dose is 1 applicator of 0.5 mg of cream, which contains 0.5 mg of estriol. This is measured by the red ring around the applicator. Estriol cream is used once a day for 2 weeks when first prescribed. After the first 2 weeks, it should be used 2 times a week.

Follow these steps to use your estriol cream:

  1. Remove the cap from the estriol cream and turn it upside down. Use the sharp end to open the tube.
  2. Attach the applicator to the tube by screwing it on.
  3. Squeeze the tube and fill the applicator with cream, up to the red line. The plunger will stop at the red line.
  4. Unscrew the cream from the applicator and replace the cap.
  5. It is best to apply the cream at bedtime, once you are ready to go to sleep. Lie down and put the applicator deep into your vagina, with the plunger on the outside.
  6. Slowly push the plunger to release the cream into your vagina.

After you have used the applicator, remove the plunger from the applicator and wash both in hot, soapy water. Never use boiling water or detergents and rinse well with water after cleaning. If you forget your dose, apply the cream when you remember, unless it has been over 12 hours since it was due. If it is more than 12 hours, skip that dose and wait until your next dose. Do not use more cream to make up for your missed dose as this could cause vaginal bleeding.
