It has been available in Europe for many years. Importantly, estriol does not lose its unique identity, as does estradiol. It remains estriol. Our Estrogen oil is formulated to be used vaginally. The blend of natural oils is designed to moisturize the tissue of the vagina and deliver the Estriol USP directly where it is most needed.
