However, interactions of this type are unlikely for Gynoflor due to the low dose and primarily local effect of this estrogen, and to the fact that the enterohepatic circulation is Overdosage

General irritations and reactions on the hormone, specifically stimulates the epithelium of the vagina, cervix and vulva, and selectively Temporary mild burning and itching may occur after the first application. Rare cases of epithelium, even at the very low dose of intolerability reactions with redness and itching 0.03 mg contained in Gynoflor. In comparison have been reported. In one such case, an to other estrogens (e.g. estradiol), estriol has a relatively short duration of action, as it is bound to the target tissues for a short time only, has a low affinity to plasma proteins, and is quickly metabolised and eliminated. Application of Gynoflor in cases of atrophic vaginitis demonstrated a considerable restitution of the vaginal epithelium within one week. In this biologically inactive forms (glucuronidisation, manner, a long-term supply of substrate for the lactobacilli is ensured.

The low dose of estriol in Gynoflor and the topical common symptoms of fluor, pruritus, burning or dyspareunia improve within the first days of treatment. Gynoflor is not suitable for the systemic or local treatment of estrogen deficiency conditions, e.g. during menopause. Further Information
