Important Safety Information
Estrogens increase the risk of cancer of the uterus. It is important that you report any unusual vaginal bleeding to your doctor right away. Do not use estrogens with or without progestins to prevent heart disease, heart attacks, strokes, or dementia. Using estrogens with or without progestins may increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, breast cancer, or blood clots. Using estrogens with or without progestins may increase your risk of dementia, based on a study of women aged 65 years or older. Estrogens should only be used for as long as needed. You and your healthcare provider should talk regularly about whether you still need treatment with ESTRING.
ESTRING should be removed after 90 days of continued use.
