Estriol is a prescription treatment for gynecomastia, also known as male breasts. Estriol Cream is an anti-androgen, which means it stops androgen hormones from converting into testosterone which is what causes man boobs. There are other possible side effects with taking Estriol Cream and these include headaches, dizziness, decreased blood pressure, dry mouth and constipation. Also, a few users have experienced a lighter feeling of sexual desire than when taking Estriol.

Gynecomastia is caused by excessive amounts of estrogen hormone in the body. The excess estrogen is made from excessive consumption of dietary estrogens and pollutants in the environment, which are able to bind to the androgen located in the breast tissue. The Estriol cream can help control the increase of estrogen in the body and reduce the symptoms of gynecomastia as well as treating the localized symptoms. It is used to treat menopausal symptoms, but because of its side effects it is not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
The side effects of Estriol Cream are minor compared to some of the other treatments for gynecomastia. It does however have its own share of side effects however and is best to avoid these. You should avoid touching the applicator wand on your breast and wash the cream off completely after applying it. It may take up to a week for the symptoms to go away and you may notice that they come back if you stop using the product. Some users notice that the symptoms disappear immediately and do not return after stopping the product.
In order to see the full results of Estriol Cream, it is important to have weekly administration. Estriol Cream is effective at raising plasma levels but it is important to have daily administration because plasma levels tend to drop a bit after each treatment. Estriol Cream can also help increase your body’s ability to retain estrogen and will increase testosterone levels while decreasing androgen levels. As estrogen levels in the body naturally decrease with age, Estriol Cream can also help reduce aging signs such as wrinkles and sagging skin by supporting cell rejuvenation. Estriol Cream is best suited for menopause and post-menopause women.
Like other forms of estrogen therapy Estriol Cream combines progestin, which prevents estrogen from being converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and lutropin, which lowers DHT levels. Leutrophin injections can also be performed using Estriol Cream. Leutrophin administration can lead to mild bleeding, but bleeding associated with Estriol cannot be expected from other forms of estrogen therapy. As previously stated, Estriol Cream will increase plasma levels, which in turn increases your body’s ability to retain and metabolize estrogen. As a result, Estriol Cream is most effective at treating symptoms associated with gynecomastia but may not be as effective at treating severe male breast reduction caused by an enlarged prostate.
If you are experiencing any type of vaginal bleeding after application of Estriol, discontinue use and contact your physician immediately. While this cream is considered safe to use, pregnant women must avoid applying Estriol. Also, pregnant women must not use this cream around their nipples. Estriol cream can be applied as often as needed, up to four times daily, for as long as recommended by your doctor. Be sure to follow application directions carefully and ask your pharmacist how to apply Estriol effectively.
