Evalon Cream contains the oestrogen hormone estriol and is used to treat menopausal atrophic vaginitis, reducing symptoms like _vaginal dryness, itching, irritation and inflammation and increased susceptibility to _vaginal or urinary infections.
Evalon cream 1% is a short-term hormone replacement therapy (HRT) used to treat atrophic vaginitis (also called vaginal atrophy) which is a common vaginal symptom of the menopause, caused by a lack of oestrogen production by the ovaries. Atrophic vaginitis, caused by thinning and shrinking of the vaginal skin layer leads to symptoms such as dryness, itching, irritation and inflammation, and to an increased susceptibility to vaginal or urinary infections, also mild urinary incontinence. Evalon cream provides a topical oestrogen treatment which helps to restore the vaginal tissue, reducing symptoms and preventing recurrent infections. Evalon cream is also used before and after _vaginal surgery in postmenopausal women.
Evalon cream contains estriol a naturally occurring oestrogen, which is the weakest of the three natural forms of oestrogen and normally present in small amounts. Unlike other forms of oestrogen (oestradiol and oestrone) estriol is short acting making it particularly suitable as a topical treatment for urogenital symptoms of menopausal atrophic vaginitis caused by lack of oestrogen. Oestrogen is a steroid hormone produced by the ovaries that binds to specific receptors inside oestrogen-responsive cells and stimulates them to make proteins involved in producing secondary heath characteristics, including thickening of the _vaginal wall and increasing _vaginal secretion. When Evalon cream is inserted into the _vagina, estriol is slowly released and absorbed into the _vaginal skin layer where it reverses changes in the _vagina by stimulating thickening of the skin, reducing inflammation and restoring the physiological pH and normal microflora (the “good” bacteria that normally live in the skin and increases resistance to infection with other bacteria that cause _vaginal or urinary infections). The restoring effect of Evalon cream reduces symptoms of atrophic vaginitis which can be maintained with continued use.
