Estradiol (Estrace, Climara, Estraderm, Menostar) Medication

Estradiol is a generic name for brand names such as Estrace, Climara, Estraderm, Menostar. Estradiol is prescribed for symptomatic treatment of the usual symptoms associated with menopause (hot flashes, vaginal dryness, etc.), prevention of bone fractures associated with osteoporosis, reduction of the risk of heart attacks and strokes, and dysfunctional (excessive and painful) uterine bleeding.

Testosterone and Estradiol

Testosterone is a direct antagonist to Estradiol. Testosterone is the major masculinizing hormone and Estradiol is the major feminizing hormone. The ratio of testosterone to estradiol (T/E2) is the major operant factor. They are designed to work together by balancing their mutually opposing properties to produce the optimal hormone benefit to both men and women.
