Menopause can be one of the most stressful times in a woman’s life. As if just getting older wasn’t hard enough, her body undergoes numerous and sometimes severe changes. For many women, menopause can cause severe hormone changes, even leading to imbalances that leave her with symptoms ranging from the expected hot flashes to insomnia. Hormone imbalances can also affect a woman mentally, leaving her with low self-esteem and low libido. Estriol creams are used to supplement the hormone imbalances, easing the stress and suffering of menopause
