Important Safety Information

WARNING: ENDOMETRIAL CANCER, CARDIOVASCULAR DISORDERS, BREAST CANCER and PROBABLE DEMENTIA. There is an increased risk of endometrial cancer in a woman with a uterus who uses unopposed estrogens. Estrogen-alone therapy should not be used for the prevention of cardiovascular disease or dementia. Increased risks of stroke and deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and increased risk of probable dementia in postmenopausal women 65 years of age and older have been reported with estrogen-alone therapy.

Estrogen plus progestin therapy should not be used for the prevention of cardiovascular disease or dementia. Increased risks of stroke, DVT, pulmonary embolism (PE), myocardial infarction (MI), and invasive breast cancer and an increased risk of probable dementia in postmenopausal women 65 years of age and older have been reported with estrogen plus progestin therapy. Estradiol should not be used in women with any of the following conditions: undiagnosed abnormal genital bleeding; known, suspected, or history of breast cancer; known or suspected estrogen-dependent neoplasia; active DVT, PE, or history of these conditions; active arterial thromboembolic disease (for example, stroke, and myocardial infarction), or a history of these conditions; known anaphylactic reaction or angioedema to estradiol; known liver impairment or disease; known protein C, protein S, or antithrombin deficiency, or other known thrombophilic disorders; or known or suspected pregnancy. Systemic absorption occurs with the use of estradiol. The warnings, precautions, and adverse reactions associated with the use of systemic estrogen-alone therapy should be taken into account. Other serious adverse reactions associated with estrogen administration include: increased risk of gallbladder disease; severe hypercalcemia in women with breast cancer and bone metastases; retinal vascular thrombosis; elevated blood pressure; hypertriglyceridemia; increased thyroid-binding globulin (TBG) levels; fluid retention; and hypocalcemia.

A few cases of local abrasion induced by the estradiol applicator have been reported, especially in women with severely atrophic vaginal mucosa. In prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind studies the most common adverse reactions (incidence ≥ 5 percent) were upper respiratory tract infection, headache, abdominal pain, back pain, genital pruritus, moniliasis, vulvovaginal mycotic infection and diarrhea.
