The main estrogen produced by the ovaries prior to menopause is estradiol, and this same estrogen is present in the patch Estraderm. When applied to the skin, this patch slowly and continuously releases small and controlled amounts of estradiol, which pass through the skin and go into the bloodstream. Estraderm should be used only under the careful supervision of a doctor, with regular follow-up to find out the side effects associated with its use. You should visit your doctor for the first follow-up within 3 to 6 months of using the patch. Your visit may include a blood pressure check, a breast examination, a Pap smear, and mammogram. You should carefully discuss the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with your doctor. You should regularly talk with your doctor whether you still need HRT or not.
