BiEstro-Care is a combination of two estrogens for peri-menopause and menopause solutions in an 80/20 ratio. Each full press of the pump provides approximately 1 mg of natural Estriol USP and 0.25 mg of natural Estradiol USP. Formulated to contain 24 mg of estriol and 6 mg of estradiol per ounce.
Suggested Use
Apply once or twice a day or as recommended by your health care practitioner. Dispense one pump of cream into the palm of your hand and rub onto the skin of your chest, abdomen, inner arms or thighs, rotating area each time.

  • Estrogen should be used with Natural Progesterone (Link)
  • Most women become deficient in Progesterone long before Estrogen levels drop to the point of causing symptoms. To prevent hormone imbalance, Progesterone creme should always be used when using Estriol creme. Progesterone and Estrogen work together to prevent bone loss. Estrogen slows down bone loss (osteoclasts), but progesterone triggers the replacing of the old bone with new bone (osteoblasts).  
  • Why can't I use Progesterone and Estriol together in just one cream?
  • Progesterone and Estrogen are dosed differently. You use Progesterone on a cyclical basis. If you are premenopausal, you would use progesterone for 2 or 3 weeks out of the month, depending on age. If you are postmenopausal or have had a hysterectomy, you use Progesterone 3 weeks out of the month. Estriol can be used every day or just a few times a week, depending on the amount needed to control symptoms. You can also increase or decrease the dosage as needed of estrogen in response to your symptoms, anywhere from 1-4 mg per day. If the creams are combined in a formula, there is no way to control your dosage. It is also good to take a week off from using estriol as you do progesterone.
When does Estrogen Decline?
Estrogen is not the first hormone to decline before menopause: progesterone is. Estrogen production does not slow down until just before menopause, about a year before your last period. By the time you know you have hit menopause (one year after your last period), your estrogen levels have declined by 40 – 60%.

What are the symptoms of low estrogen in menopause and pre or peri menopause?
During the approach of menopause, your hormones begin shifting and eventually you have much lower quantities of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone after menopause. Low estrogen symptoms are: hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, brain fog, headaches, dry eyes, dry skin, vaginal dryness, loss of collagen, and insomnia.
Several studies have found estrogen levels increased in the years just before menopause, along with lower progesterone levels. This could explain why so many women find relief with progesterone cream in peri menopause.

Fluctuations of Estrogen during Menopause Stages

Average Estrogen and Menopause

Estrogen level


Premenopause: This is the period from a woman´s first period to her last. Monthly cycles cause hormonal fluctuations and a range of unpleasant symptoms.

Perimenopause: The stage before menopause and the time when most women first experience menopausal symptoms. Perimenopause is, in effect, the reproductive years coming to an end and resulting changes in estrogen levels trigger unpleasant symptoms such as irregular periods, hot flashes and night sweats. Perimenopause usually lasts between 2 to 8 years prior to menopause but it´s possible for women to experience symptoms as early as their mid-30s.

Menopause: It is when a woman has not had a menstrual period for 12 consecutive months. During this time, fluctuating hormone levels can pose real problems for women, forcing many to seek appropriate relief from troublesome symptoms.

Postmenopause: It is the stage after menopause and during this time a lack of hormones such as estrogen triggers a new range of health risks such as cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.

Estrogen and Menopause Symptoms

During the menopause stages, the estrogen levels produced by the body will vary. This is the main reason why there are many symptoms that women will experience.

Pre-menopause and Perimenopause: During a woman´s regular monthly period and entering into perimenopause she will encounter a range of common symptoms such as:

• Hot flashes
• Mood swings
• Vaginal dryness and itching
• Disturbed sleep

Menopause: Throughout menopause, estrogen levels can become extremely unbalanced, resulting in excess or insufficient estrogen. This can result in additional symptoms such as:
• Fatigue
• Hair Loss or Thinning
• Sleep Disorders
• Loss of libido
• Difficulty Concentrating
• Disturbing Memory Lapses
• Dizziness
• Weight Gain
• Incontinence
• Bloating
• Changes in Body Odor
• Bouts of Rapid Heart Beat
• Depression
• Anxiety
• Irritability
• Headaches
• Aching Joints and Muscle Problems
• Increased Tension in Muscles
• Itchy, Crawly Skin
• Tingling Extremities
Postmenopause: For postmenopausal women there are new concerns due to continued low levels of estrogen and other hormones. Health risks during this time are more serious and can be more long-term. These include but are not limited to:

• Allergies
• Strokes
• Heart Disease
• Lupus
• Breast / Uterine Cancer
• Gallbladder Disease
• Osteoporosis
• Thyroid Dysfunction
• Arthritis


  1. Depression may be the longest and most damaging of symptoms. The hormone changes could spark a chemical imbalance. The other common reason for depression is because women tend to have negative views around menopause. Many believe it has made them less of a woman or old. Other symptoms certainly do not do anything to ease depression. Since so many women have trouble sleeping due to menopause, it can make depression much worse. This is added to being sore and uncomfortable, having hot flashes, and no sex drive. Therapy has been known to do wonders for women, in addition to herbal supplements.
