Form of issue
The vaginal cream has a homogeneous mass, the shade is pure white or whitish, has a specific smell.
As part of the remedy there is a natural female hormone estriol. This is the so-called short-acting hormone. Consequently, it does not provide stimulation of proliferative processes in the endometrium. The agent accelerates the process of recovery of the epithelium of the vaginal mucosa, as well as the optimization of the pH environment and the restoration of the natural microflora of the vagina. As a result, the level of local immunity increases, an obstacle appears for the development of pathological flora.
Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics
The agent can be used in the presence of pathological symptoms, which are manifested due to a lack of estrogens in the body. A special efficacy of the drug in the treatment of disorders of the urogenital character is noted.
If there are atrophic changes in the mucous membrane of the vagina, the drug helps restore the mucosa.
As a consequence, under the influence of the drug, the level of resistance of the vaginal tissues to inflammatory processes and infections increases. Women note that after taking the remedy, the manifestation of dryness and itching of the vagina, dyspareunia, infections of the genitourinary system decreases, and complaints that relate to urinary incontinence disappear.
When the agent is administered intravaginally, the optimal bioavailability of the active substance is provided at the site of its action. The estriol is absorbed into the general circulation system by suction. As a consequence, the concentration in the blood plasma of unconjugated estriol significantly increases. The highest level of concentration of the substance in the blood plasma is observed 1-2 hours after its administration. Approximately 90% of estriol binds to albumin in the blood plasma.
Since estriol is the final product of metabolism, it is mainly excreted in the urine in conjugated form. With faeces only an insignificant part of the preparation (about 2%) is released from the body, mainly in unconjugated form.
