Oestrogen gel

This is one of the most popular ways to take oestrogen and the gel is applied once a day to skin on the upper arm or inner thigh. It comes in a pump action bottle, and your prescriber will tell you how many pumps a day to use. The hormone in the gel is absorbed through the skin and enters the bloodstream.

It’s easy to change the dose (if directed by your doctor), the gel takes a few minutes to dry before dressing, and there are no visible signs that you’re using HRT.
