Estrace cream application?

Has 16 years experience.

i have recently had a pt who was schedule estrace cream 3xweek. i've questioned myself if i'm doing it right. i thought that i'm only suppose to insert at the tip where the meatus is located, does anyone know the true application?

according to drugs.com it suppose to be deep insertion, i need some clarification and a rationale.


kal (by the way, i'm a male).


I would clarify with the physician. It can be used in both ways. How she wants it used on her patient is the issue.

The typical application for Estrace cream is an applicator inserted deep inside the vagina. Now, off lable, you can have your patient use it otherwise, but that is it's intented application.
