Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient in Estradiol Vaginal Tablets
The active ingredient used in Estradiol Pessaries (E2 Vaginal Tablets) is Estradiol.
Uses of Estradiol Pessaries (E2 Vaginal Tablets)
Since estrogen levels decline during menopause, vaginal tissues tend to shrink and lose their elasticity, sometimes producing a condition known as atrophic vaginitis. When E2 Vaginal Tablets are inserted in the vagina on a regular basis, the Estradiol present in Estradiol Pessaries provides a local source of estrogen replacement without passing through the rest of the system. This helps relieve such symptoms of atrophic vaginitis as vaginal dryness, soreness, itching, irritation in the vagina, and pain during sexual intercourse.
How to use an Estradiol Pessary (Estradiol Vaginal Tablet)
This medication is contained in a ring that you or your health caregiver will put into your vagina. The ring will slowly release small amounts of medicine for your body to absorb. Your health caregiver will show you how to insert the ring. Leave the ring in its sealed wrapper until you are ready to use it. Once the ring is in place in your vagina, you should not be able to feel the ring. If you feel uncomfortable, the ring may not be pushed in far enough. Gently push the ring farther into your vagina. If you feel pain, talk to your doctor. You will leave the ring in for 90 days (3 months), unless your doctor tells you a different schedule. After that time, remove the ring and insert a new one. If you forget to remove the ring after 90 days, call your doctor for instructions. The ring may move down into the lower part of your vagina accidently. One thing that could make this happen is straining to have a bowel movement. Use your finger to gently push the ring back into place. If the ring comes all the way out of your vagina, rinse it off with warm water and put it back in. Call your doctor if the ring comes out several times. If you need to remove the ring, hook your finger through the ring and pull it out.
