The most common instructions for the use of vaginal estradiol cream are as follows:
- Use 1-4 g measured with the applicator daily for 1-2 weeks, as indicated by your physician
- Then decrease dosage by 50% for the same period (1–2 weeks)
- Once the vaginal skin has been restored, use 1 g 1–3 times/week
Your Rory-affiliated provider may customize your dosage and adjust it upward or downward as needed to reach the best dose for you.
