ESTRIOL (E3) –The WEAK, protective estrogen

Supplementing ESTRIOL

Estrogen Receptor (ER) Considerations

Estrogen receptors have been identified in the vulva, vagina, bladder, urethra, pelvic floor musculature, and endopelvic fascia.

Number ofERsvaries by location:

✔ Vaginal epithelium has highestERconcentration –also, the vaginahas a high ER : PR ratio; in contrast,the vulva has high PR : ER ratio;

✔ Cervix, uterine body and fallopian tubes - have high ER density

ERandPRconcentration remains stable postmenopause - but AR (androgen receptor) concentration decreases by about half

COMBINE ESTRIOL THERAPY WITH . . ...

PROGESTERONE - To prevent hormone imbalance, any supplemental estrogen should be used together withwith Natural PROGESTERONE. According to Dr. Lee, most women become deficient in PROGESTERONE long before estrogen levels drop to the point of causing symptoms.

Vitamin E - administered at 400 IU / day with ESTRIOL therapy will improve ESTRIOL activity and effectiveness

HOW MUCH AND HOW OFTEN?

Use 0.5 mg - 0.75 mgtopical or intravaginal ESTRIOL /day or just a few times a week – responding to amount needed to control symptoms. See ESTRIOL Health Benefits for doses used in studies for specific problems.

Take a break from using ESTRIOL at the same time you take a break from PROGESTERONE –E.g. If you are postmenopausal or have had a hysterectomy, you use PROGESTERONE for only 3 weeks out of the month
