Estradiol Acetate (Vaginal Ring)

Vaginal rings are an alternative to oral medications for women who need to increase their estrogen levels. Menopausal women may be prescribed a vaginal ring that contains Estradiol Acetate. This medication helps reduce symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes. The woman inserts it into her vagina for three weeks, then removes it. After taking a week break, she puts in a new ring. This allows estrogen to constantly be infused into her body.

Side Effects/Warnings

This medication carries a greater risk of endometrial cancer than some other medications because it is composed entirely of estrogen; it does not contain progesterone. Women can avoid the risk of this type of cancer by having a hysterectomy.

Women over the age of 65 who use this medication are at increased risk of stroke, breast cancer and dementia.
