Frequently Asked Questions
What is estradiol (Estrace) and how does it work?
Estradiol (Estrace) is the female sex hormone responsible for developing female characteristics during puberty, and triggering the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle, which is what prompts ovulation.
It also functions as a growth hormone for the female reproductive organs, including the vagina, the endometrium, the cervical glands and the fallopian tubes, and is important for bone health in women.
Unhealthy levels of estradiol, both low and high, can contribute to many gynecologic issues, including endometriosis, fibroids and cancers of the reproductive system in women.
What are the uses for estradiol (Estrace)?
Because of its impact on the reproductive system, estradiol can function as a contraceptive, or assist with infertility treatments, depending on how it’s administered. An Estrace prescription can also be used to combat the lower levels of estradiol that occur during menopause or after surgical removal of ovaries.
In addition, in male-to-female transsexuals, an estradiol prescription is used to maintain and encourage growth of female characteristics.
How do you use estradiol (Estrace)?
Estradiol can be administered in one of four methods:
- Vaginally – By route of the vagina
- Intramuscularly – Injected directly into a muscle mass
- Transdermally – Injected superficially between the layers of skin
- Orally – Taken by mouth, usually as a capsule
The strength of the dosage, frequency of usage and method of administration should be discussed with a doctor prior to taking estradiol (Estrace).
What are the side effects and risks of estradiol (Estrace)?
Common side effects of estradiol (Estrace) include:
- Fibroid enlargement
- Vaginal infections (such as yeast infections)
- Nipple discharge
- Changes in the amount of vaginal secretion
- Painful periods or dysmenorrhea
- Abnormal vaginal bleeding
- Cervical ectropion (soft cells from the cervical canal spreading to the outer cervix)

Before accepting an estradiol prescription online, make sure to talk to your doctor about all the side effects and risks associated with its use.
Who should not take estradiol (Estrace)?
Due to increased blood pressure and effects on the cardiovascular system, patients with a history of heart problems or cardiovascular issues should avoid using estradiol (Estrace), as it could lead to increased risk of heart attack or myocardial infarctions; particularly in women who smoke.
Pregnant women shouldn’t use estradiol, as it has been shown to potentially cause birth defects.
Epileptic patients may find they experience worsening or increased seizures, and therefore should avoid use whenever possible.
Even if you believe estradiol is a safe choice for you to use, discuss your medical history with a doctor before you take estradiol to ensure your health is protected and you have a clear understanding of the risks it may pose to you.
