Estradiol valerate is a synthetic hormone taken orally in hormone replacement therapy to provide effective relief of symptoms that accompany menopause such as night sweating, hot flashes and overall vaginal inflammation, itchiness and dryness caused by the lack of oestrogen. Hence, estradiol valerate works to replace the oestrogen no longer produced by the ovaries in order to relieve symptoms and improve the quality of life.
The drug can also be used to maintain normal reproductive and menstrual conditions.
