Imvexxy (Estradiol Vaginal Inserts)

ManufacturerKnight Therapeutics Inc
Dosage:4 mcg/10 mcg

Imvexxy (estradiol vaginal inserts) is a prescription medicine that contains an estrogen hormone in a vaginal insert. It is used after menopause to treat moderate to severe painful intercourse and other symptoms such as vaginal dryness, burning or itching due to changes in and around your vagina. Imvexxy restores vaginal tissues and improves your vagina's pH levels to relief your symptoms. Imvexxy provides a sex hormone called estradiol, which is a type of estrogen. Imvexxy is an ultra-low dose estrogen option in a soft gel insert. This medication may help reduce dryness and discomfort around your vagina. After menopause, your body makes less or no estrogen. Imvexxy replaces the estrogen that is missing in some women. It improves pain before, during or after sex, which is a symptom of vulvar and vaginal atrophy. Use Imvexxy exactly as directed by your healthcare professional.
