Uses: This medication is a female estrogen hormone and is usually given to women during and after menopause to reduce menopausal symptoms (such as intense feelings of warmth and sweating known as hot flashes). These symptoms result from a decrease in the amount of estrogen produced by the body. Using estrogen drugs can help the body adjust to lower estrogen levels and reduce these symptoms. If you need treatment only for vaginal menopause symptoms (such as vaginal dryness), products applied directly inside the vagina should be considered before treatment with products that are taken by mouth, absorbed through the skin, or injected. This medication is also used to treat certain conditions in women who have not yet gone through menopause but whose bodies do not make enough estrogen.
