Estradiol 2 is a medicine for Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). It contains estradiol, the female oestrogen hormone. When women get older, they produce less oestrogen. Estradiol 2 substitutes the lack of oestrogen in both peri- and postmenopausal women. It reliefs the symptoms of the menopause and also prevents osteoporosis. Additionally, Estradiol 2 is also used as transgender therapy.
Used for treating: peri- and postmenopausal symptoms
Estradiol 2 substitutes the lack of oestrogen if the forthcoming symptoms seriously hinder a woman in her daily life. By substituting oestrogen, symptoms as hot face and flushes are alleviated. Some women can also develop fragile bones during the menopause. Estradiol 2 prevents this from happening.
Another treatment Estradiol 2 is used for, is transgender therapy. Taking hormones will alter the secondary gender characteristics. These characteristics will become more pronounced which corresponds with the transgender’s gender identity.
