Estrogen, a hormone that is produced in lower quantities beginning in the years before menopause, is available in synthetic form as tablets, rings, and creams. There are two types of vaginal estrogen creams--conjugated equine estrogen (CEE) cream (Premarin cream) and estradiol cream. For the CEE cream, 0.5 to 2 grams is inserted vaginally once a day. After two weeks, patients are usually instructed to use the cream three times per week. For the estradiol cream, the dosage is 2 to 4 grams per day for the first one to two weeks, and then 1 grams three times per week.
