Oestrogel Pump Pack Gel contains oestradiol, 0.75mg per metered dose, that is used to replace the loss of oestrogen at menopause, relieving menopausal symptoms.  Oestrogel also stimulates the development of female sexual characteristics for male to female transsexuals.

Oestrogel Pump Pack general information

What is Oestrogel Pump Pack used for?

Oestrogel Pump Pack is a metered-dose pump filled with a clear, colorless transdermal gel containing oestrogen 0.06%.  The transdermal gel is applied to the skin and used for hormone replacement therapy (HRT), to substitute for a lack of oestrogen production by the ovaries that happens during menopause or following surgical removal of the ovaries.  Using Oestrogel helps relieve symptoms of menopause caused by oestrogen deficiency, such as hot flushes, night sweats, sleeplessness, vaginal dryness, headaches, mood swings, lack of concentration and loss of energy.  Oestrogel is also used to help prevent postmenopausal bone loss (osteoporosis) and reduce risk of fracture.  Oestrogel stimulates the development of female sexual characteristics and can be used as part of a transgender hormone therapy for male to female transsexuals.

How does Oestrogel Pump Pack work?

Oestrogel Pump Pack contains a transdermal gel containing 17-beta oestradiol 0.06%, the major and the most active form of the female hormone oestrogen.  When the gel is applied to the skin, oestradiol is absorbed through the skin into the blood.  Oestrogen is a steroid hormone produced by the ovaries that binds to specific receptors inside oestrogen-responsive cells and stimulates them to make proteins involved in producing secondary sexual characteristics, such as breast development and in regulating the menstrual cycle.  Oestrogen also has several other actions in various metabolic processes including maintaining bone mass and lipid (fat) metabolism.  Because the oestadiol in Oestrogel Pump Pack enters the blood directly and continuously, it is not metabolised (broken down) by the liver, as happens with oral oestrogen tablets, which means that Oestrogel is effective at a lower dose and provides more even blood levels similar to the natural release of oestrogen by the ovaries. 

What does Oestrogel Pump Pack contain?

Oestrogel Pump Pack contains the active ingredient 17-beta oestradiol 0.06% (w/w), in a clear, colorless transdermal gel, that is used for hormone replacement therapy (HRT), to substitute for a lack of oestrogen.  It also contains ethanol, carbomer triethanolamine, purified water.  One dose delivers 1.25g of gel containing 0.75mg of oestradiol with each actuation (each time the pump is depressed). 

Treating symptoms of menopause with Oestrogel Pump Pack

Oestrogel Pump Pack is a transdermal gel that is applied to the skin and contains oestradiol, an active form of the female hormone oestrogen that alleviates moderate to severe menopausal symptoms.  Oestradiol in Oestrogel Pump Pack substitutes for the loss of oestrogen production by the ovaries that occurs during menopause causing symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, sleeplessness, dry vagina, headaches, mood swings, lack of concentration loss of energy and bone loss (osteoporosis). 

Oestrogel Pump Pack for hormone replacement therapy

Oestrogel Pump Pack for transgender treatment

Oestrogel can be used as part of a gender reassignment program for male to female transsexuals, by providing a source of oestradiol, an active form of the female hormone oestrogen.  Oestrogel is a transdermal gel containing oestrogen that is applied to the skin and stimulates the development of female secondary sexual characteristics, such as breast development and also induces metabolic changes such as fat distribution to redefine the general body shape.

You should apply your Oestrogel gel once daily morning or evening but at the same time each day.  Avoid using any skin products that may alter the barrier structure or function of your skin while using Oestrogel, such as strong skin cleansers and detergents, skin care products of high alcoholic content (astringents, sunscreens) and keratolytics (e.g. salicylic acid, lactic acid), products containing benzalkonium or benzothonium chloride and sodium lauryl sulphate, as these could make the Oestrogel less effective.

To apply the gel:

  1. Press the pump once to dispense one dose (1.25g), or twice to apply two doses (2.5g) of Oestrogel. 
  2. Apply to clean, dry, unbroken skin on the outside of your arm, from wrist to shoulder.  You do not need rub the gel in but allow it to dry on your skin for at least 5 minutes.  Do not wash the skin or apply other skin care products until at least one hour after application.  Do not apply to skin that is red or irritated or to the breasts. 
  3. Wash your hands after applying Oestrogel gel, to reduce the chance that the gel will spread from your hands to other people. 

The dose you take depends on what you are being treated for and your doctor’s recommendation. You should continue to apply your Oestrogel daily and continuously for as long as recommended by your doctor.
