Oestradiol is used in post menopausal osteoporosis (porous bones) and hormone replacement therapy (hrt).
How it works
The active ingredient, synthetic 17Î²-estradiol, is chemically and biologically identical to endogenous human oestradiol. It substitutes for the loss of oestrogen production in menopausal women, and alleviates menopausal symptoms.
