Product details

What is Gina®:

Gina® is a vaginal tablet and contains estradiol.

  • Estradiol is a female sex hormone.
  • It belongs to a group of hormones called oestrogens.
  • It is exactly the same as the estradiol produced by the ovaries of women.

Gina® belongs to a group of medicines called local vaginal Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). It is used to relieve menopausal symptoms in the vagina such as dryness or irritation. In medical terms this is known as 'vaginal atrophy'. This happens when the vaginal wall becomes thinner, drier and less elastic and can cause symptoms in the vagina such as dryness, soreness or irritation, itching or burning sensation, and painful sexual intercourse. It is caused by a drop in the levels of oestrogen in your body which happens naturally after the menopause.

How does Gina® work:

Gina® works by replacing the oestrogen which is normally produced in the ovaries of women. It is inserted into your vagina, so the hormone is released where it is needed. This may relieve discomfort in the vagina.

Who can use Gina®:

Gina® is used to treat the symptoms of vaginal atrophy in postmenopausal women over 50 years and who have not had a period for at least 1 year.

For more information on the risks associated with HRT Gina®, please read the enclosed leaflet

Recently became a couple after a long time being single. Was horrified to be suffering with painful sex. Read about Gina online and decided to give it a try, and, fingers crossed, it's effective. Really great service from ChemistDirect. Speedy response and delivery. Very thorough with online questionnaire. Can't fault product or service.
