You can consider patch, gel, cream, ointment, or spray; bio-dential or synthetic; and pre-made or compounded.

  2. Doesn’t have to first be metabolized by the liver
  3. Able to use lower doses
  4. Noninvasive
  5. Self-administered
  6. Convenient
  7. Daily or multi-day options
  8. Can choose bio-identical options
  9. May be more effective
  10. Fewer side-effects

EstroGel® is just one transdermal option you can consider. It is a bio-dentical estrogen gel that is applied daily to the arm.
