About the drug:
Estradiol valerate is a type of estrogen, a female sex hormone produced by the ovaries. It is required for several processes in the body. When it is not produced in sufficient quantities in the body (for example: in postmenopausal women), then it has to be taken in the form of medication. Estradiol valerate is sold as medication under various trade names. This medication is available in several forms such as Ampuoles, vaginal injection, vaginal tabs, injections and skin patches.
Uses of the drug:
Estradiol valerate is prescribed primarily for the treatment of menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, burning, and irritation. Some of its other uses are prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, and replacement of estrogen in women with ovarian failure or other disorders that result in deficiency of natural estrogen in the body. Estradiol valerate medication is also used for the treatment of some types of cancer in women and men.
Working of the drug:
In women, menopause occurs somewhere between the age of 45-55 years. After menopause the body produces less amount of estrogen. This can cause symptoms such as "hot flushes".
Estrogens are like the hormones produced by the ovaries before menopause, they can help to control the symptoms. Along with progesterone the estrogen is used to treat women who have had their uterus or "womb” removed. Estradiol valerate is broken into estradiol and valeric acid in the liver.

I also recommend using exfoliating circular skin pads (Target for about $3 for 100) when opening the vials. They have a dotted gripping surface on one side, which helps hold the vial and contain glass shards. Use one pad around vial, and the second (alcohol squeezed out) pad around the vial neck. I believe the harder you clean the neck and tip of the vials with an alcohol pad, the more you dissolve the red band, making it easier to open.
4 years of doing this and these are the best tips i've found. Having my Bride help me with the injections is a tremendous help. I swear by the upper-outer quads rather than thighs for IM injections.
The one thing I would really like is for current stock use by dates to be included in product description - i like to keep my own stock up to latest use by date
I do however wished that the Pharmaceutical company would do away with those pesky Glass ampoules? Would be better if they came pre=filled or easy pop cap like USA injections are manufactured.
