Bi-Estrogen/Progesterone Cream, 30mL
Bi-Estrogen troches contain a combination of 80% Estriol and 20% Estradiol. Estriol and Estradiol are two of three principal estrogens produced by the body (the third being Estrone). Estradiol is substantially more active than its metabolites at the cellular level and when combined with Estriol can help improve menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, burning/irritation; as well as assist in the prevention of osteoporosis. Estriol may also help improve cardiovascular risk factors and can reduce pro-carcinogenic effects of Estradiol. Progesterone is a naturally occurring progestin; commonly prescribed in combination with estrogen-containing medications in postmenopausal women with a uterus to help reduce the risk of developing cancer of the uterus, as well as prevent abnormal thickening of the uterine lining in women taking estrogen. It is also used to regulate menstrual periods in women who are pre-menopausal but have stopped having periods due to low progesterone levels.
