Estradiol patch belongs to the class of medications known as estrogen replacement therapy. It is used for the management of menopausal symptoms such as abnormal uterine bleeding, hot flushes, sweating, and chills.
When an estradiol patch is applied to your skin, it releases estradiol into your blood through the skin. Estradiol is a type of estrogen, a female hormone that is produced by the ovaries. At menopause, the amount of estrogen made by the ovaries declines and symptoms such as hot flashes (sudden, extreme feeling of warmth) and vaginal dryness can occur. Most women reach menopause naturally around the age of 50, but some women may undergo menopause sooner due to many causes, including surgery.
Women who have not had a hysterectomy (removal of their uterus or womb) must also take another female hormone called progestin while they are taking this medication to prevent complications associated with taking estrogen alone. Estradiol patch is also used for the prevention of osteoporosis when there are low estrogen levels in the body, in addition to other measures to help prevent osteoporosis - such as calcium and vitamin D supplements, quitting smoking, and regular weight-bearing exercise.
