Description

Estriol is basically a steroid, a weaker form of the naturally-produced female hormone estrogen, and is used to help restore the natural balance of this hormone in the human body. It works by mimicking the activity of the hormone estrogen. It is generally used to treat symptoms associated with a lack of the hormone estrogen in women who have undergone menopause, or after they have had surgeries to have their ovaries removed.

Estriol is available for use in tablet form, or as a cream for vaginal use, as prescribed by the doctor. Before using Estriol tell your doctor if you are using any prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs, or other herbal and dietary pills and supplements, if you are allergic to certain food items or substances, or if you are pregnant and/or breastfeeding. Estriol should be used with caution in women who have endometrial hyperplasia, kidney disease, circulatory disease, asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, endometriosis, blood clots, or cancer of the lining of the womb.

What is estriol used for?

Estriol cream is used to relieve vaginal dryness, itching or irritation associated with the menopause. The cream is inserted into the vagina using an applicator. Estriol cream is also sometimes used to treat the vaginal tissues before and after vaginal surgery, eg for vaginal prolapse.

Estriol Reduces Markers of Cardiovascular Risk

Growing evidence suggests that estriol may offer protective benefits for the cardiovascular system. For instance, Takahashi et al. found that some women with natural menopause given 2 mg/day oral estriol for 12 months had a significant decrease in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.1

Another study compared the use of oral estriol at a dose of 2 mg/day for 10 months in 20 postmenopausal and 29 elderly women. Some of the elderly women had decreases in total cholesterol and triglycerides and an increase in beneficial high-density lipoprotein (HDL).7

Measurement of Estriol

Hormones produced by the body are secreted in pulses, while hormones taken transdermally or orally will initially be very high and slowly decline over the course of the day. This scientific reality makes testing for estriol at a single point in time—as would be the case for saliva or serum testing—very inaccurate. There are too many variables: When did your body last put out a pulse of the hormone under investigation? When did you take your hormone-replacement therapy? Estriol in particular does not last very long in the blood. In fact, the half-life of estriol has been shown to be between 3.6 and 64 minutes.30

The more accurate way to assess estriol is by collecting what is excreted during a 24-hour urine collection. This form of testing ensures that we have an accurate value that is not affected by the fluctuations of the day, because we are measuring 24 hours' worth of hormone production.
