Femring is a female hormone (estrogen). Femring is used by women to help reduce symptoms of menopause (such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness). These symptoms are caused by the body making less estrogen. If you are using Femring to treat symptoms only in and around the vagina, other products applied directly inside the vagina (such as cream, vaginal tablet) should be considered before Femring.
Estrogens, either used alone or with another hormone (progestin), have rarely caused very serious side effects. Discuss the risks and benefits of hormone treatment with your doctor. Estrogens should not be used to prevent heart disease or dementia. Estrogens can increase the risk of cancer of the uterus (endometrial cancer). Taking a progestin as directed by your doctor can help decrease this risk. Tell your doctor right away if you have any unusual vaginal bleeding. In postmenopausal women, estrogens, taken with or without a progestin, increase the risk of cancer of the breast/ovaries, stroke, dementia, and serious blood clots. When used along with a progestin, estrogens also increase the risk of heart disease (such as heart attacks). The risk for serious side effects may depend on the dose of estrogen and the length of time Femring is used. Therefore, Femring should be used at the lowest effective dose and for the shortest amount of time. Discuss the use of Femring with your doctor and check with him/her regularly (for example, every 3 to 6 months) to see if you still need to take Femring. If you will be taking Femring long-term, you should have regular complete physical exams (for example, once a year) as directed by your doctor. See also Notes section.
How to Use Femring
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using Femring and each time you get a refill. Learn how to use Femring properly. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Wash and dry your hands before handling the ring. Insert the ring high into the vagina as directed. The ring is usually left in place for 3 months and then removed and replaced with a new ring if treatment is to be continued. Do not leave a ring in place for longer than 3 months. Follow the dosing schedule carefully. The Dosage of Femring is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. If the ring is put in properly, you should not be able to feel it and it will not interfere with sexual intercourse. If you are able to feel the ring or feel slight discomfort from the ring, it may mean that the ring is not high enough. Gently push the ring higher with your finger. If the ring falls out of the vagina, rinse the ring with lukewarm water and put it back into the vagina. Contact your doctor if the ring falls out often. The ring is removed by hooking your finger through the ring and gently pulling it out. Contact your doctor if you have trouble removing the ring. Discard the used ring in the trash. Do not flush it down the toilet. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
Before using estradiol, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Femring may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Femring, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,vaginal bleeding of unknown cause, certain cancers (such as breast cancer, cancer of the uterus/ovaries), blood clots (such as in the legs, eyes, lungs), blood clotting disorders (such as protein C or protein S deficiency), stroke, heart disease (such as heart attack), liver disease, kidney disease, family medical history (especially breast lumps, cancer, blood clots), family or personal history of a certain swelling disorder (angioedema), blood clotting disorders (such as protein C or protein S deficiency), high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol/triglyceride levels, obesity, lupus, underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), mineral imbalance (low or high level of calcium in the blood), a certain hormone problem (hypoparathyroidism), uterus problems (such as fibroids, endometriosis), gallbladder disease, asthma, seizures, migraine headaches, mental/mood disorders (such as dementia, depression), a certain blood disorder (porphyria), frequent vaginal infections. Do not smoke or use tobacco. Estrogens combined with smoking further increases your risk of stroke, blood clots, high blood pressure, and heart attack, especially in women older than 35. Tell your doctor if you just had or will be having surgery, or if you will be confined to a chair or bed for a long time (such as a long plane flight). These conditions increase your risk of getting blood clots, especially if you are using an estrogen product. You may need to stop Femring for a time or take special precautions. Femring may cause blotchy, dark areas on your face and skin (melasma). Sunlight may worsen this effect. Limit your time in the sun. Avoid tanning booths and sunlamps. Use sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors. If you are nearsighted or wear contact lenses, you may develop vision problems or trouble wearing your contact lenses. Contact your eye doctor if these problems occur. If you get a vaginal infection while using this ring, you may leave the ring in place while the infection is being treated. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for treatment options. Femring must not be used during pregnancy. If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, tell your doctor right away. Femring passes into breast milk. It may reduce the quality and amount of breast milk produced. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
Not applicable. However, if you have not inserted a new ring after 3 months, contact your doctor or pharmacist right away to establish a new dosing schedule.
