  • What to expect
  • For some women, estrogen treatment benefits can be noticed in as little as 2 weeks, but it can take a few months to realize the benefits. It can also take some time to optimize dosage for your body — your Modern Age clinician will work with you understand how it's working and adjust as needed.

  • Downsides: 
  • For some women, taking estrogen therapy increases the risk of blood clots, but this is typically only present for estrogen taken orally. By taking estrogen in the patch form, this risk is mitigated.

  • Safety information
  • For anyone with a uterus who is prescribed the Estradiol Patch, we will also prescribe Progesterone. This is to prevent increased thickness of the uterine lining. Progesterone prevents this build-up to ensure there is no increased risk for developing endometrial hyperplasia and cancer.  

  • If you have a history of breast or endometrial cancer, are a BRCA1/2 carrier, have undiagnosed vaginal bleeding, coronary heart disease, blood clots or stroke, estrogen use may not be recommended. 

  • The prescription you need, without the hassle

    • Diagnostic testing

      Your clinician will take your medical history and order diagnostic testing to understand your hormone levels, then create a personalized plan for you.

    • Speedy shipping

      If this product is right for you, you'll get it shipped directly to your home. Anyone with a uterus will also be prescribed Progesterone to ensure proper hormone balance.

    • Ongoing support

      Your Modern Age clinician will check in with you as you take your hormones to ensure you have optimal dosage.

    Common Questions

    Does estrogen treatment increase the risk of breast cancer or other cancers?
    No. Recent analyses has revealed that estrogen may in fact help prevent breast cancer, which refuted the 2002 report by Women's Health Initiative that estrogen treatment could increase the risk of this disease. Plus, the original study was assessing oral treatments that are rarely used anymore. 
    How long will I need to be on estrogen therapy?
    There is no set time to stop taking estrogen. Some doctors suggest 5 years for managing hot flashes and other showing symptoms. But managing your estrogen balance later in life could help prevent disease, bone density loss, cholesterol issues, and more. Your Modern Age clincian can help advise what duration of estrogen therapy is right for you. 
    How do I choose between a patch and a pill?
    We do not offer estrogen treatment in pill form, primarily because evidence shows oral estrogen is more strongly associated with blood clots and stroke as compared to estrogen patches or creams. When estrogen is taken in oral form, it engages "clotting cascade", which increases risk of clots. Utilizing non-oral routes like this Estradiol Patch bypasses this risk.
    Why should I get estrogen treatment with Modern Age, when I could also get it from OBGYN or Primary Care?
    OB/GYNs are reproductive health experts, not necessarily hormonal health experts. Modern Age clinicians are specifically trained on hormonal health and the effects it has on your body as you get older. We also perform hormone diagnostic testing to guide our treatments, which allows us to offer a personalized experience with effective results.
