How to use Vagifem

Always follow your prescriber instructions on how to use Yuvafem. Consistent use of Vagifem is necessary to maximize its benefits.

It is crucial to follow the prescribed treatment regimen and not to increase the dosage or use the medication improperly for an extended period. Doing so not only fails to improve the condition but also increases the risk of adverse effects.

Here is a guide on how to use or apply the medication:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly before handling the Vagifem vaginal tablet and applicator.
  • Remove the Vagifem tablet from its blister pack.
  • Lie on your back with your knees bent or stand with one foot on a chair or step.
  • Do not take the tablet out of the applicator. If the tablet comes out of the applicator when you open it, carefully put it back in. If the tablet falls out of the applicator when you try to insert it, throw it away and use a new applicator and tablet.
  • Gently insert the Vagifem tablet into the vagina as far as it will comfortably go using the applicator provided.
  • Push the plunger of the applicator to release the tablet into the vagina.
  • Remove the applicator and discard it in a safe manner.
  • Wash your hands again after use

Vagifem Dosage

Vagifem dosage should be determined by the patient’s medical history, needs and response to treatment. Typically, the recommended dosage of Yuvafem is one tablet inserted into the vagina once daily for the first two weeks of treatment. After that, the dosage may be reduced to one tablet inserted into the vagina twice a week. It is important to follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider regarding the dosage and duration of treatment.

Vagifem Contraindications

You should not use Vagifem if you:

  • Are allergic to Estradiol or any ingredients in the medication.
  • Have history of blood clots: Women with a history of blood clots in the legs (deep vein thrombosis) or lungs (pulmonary embolism).
  • Have a history of heart attack or stroke. The medication can increase the risk of cardiovascular events in individuals with a history of these conditions.
  • Liver disease. Vagifem tablets are metabolized in the liver, and liver dysfunction can affect its clearance from the body and increase the risk of adverse effects.
  • Uncontrolled high blood pressure: Women with uncontrolled high blood pressure should be cautious when using Vagifem. This medication can increase blood pressure, and individuals with pre-existing hypertension may experience further elevation of blood pressure.
  • Breast cancer or other hormone-sensitive cancers.

These contraindications are general guidelines, and individual patient factors and medical history should be considered when determining the appropriateness of using Vagifem as part of menopausal hormone therapy. If a doctor prescribed Vagifem tablets as part of your menopause treatment, your individual factors and health history should have been evaluated making sure that the medication will not put your health at risk.
