What is Ovestin 1mg cream?

Ovestin 1mg cream is a cream you apply to your vagina to relieve dryness or irritation (vaginal atrophy). This dryness can be caused by changing hormone levels during or after the menopause. Ovestin 1mg cream provides your body with the hormones you need to relieve your symptoms. It contains a medicine called estriol, which is a type of the hormone oestrogen.

Ovestin is the brand name, and the generic medicine is called estriol. Estriol is part of a group of medicines called Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).

How does Ovestin 1mg cream work?

Ovestin 1mg cream works by giving your body the hormone (oestrogen) it is missing. You use an applicator to insert oestrogen into your vagina, so the hormone is released in your body where it is needed. This relieves the symptoms of dryness and irritation.

Once you have started using Ovestin, you should have regular check-ups with your doctor to discuss whether it is right to continue with the treatment.
