Hi slw9108,
It was EstroGel and its E2 estrodiol and it was prescribed by my doctor for me because my estrogen level was low. I was in menopause. Hysterectal menopause because I had a complete hysterectomy including ovaries and cervix. If you think you may need something, here's a link to Dr. Vliet's, Hormone Questionnaire http://www.herplace.com/hormone-info/questionnaires.htm review it and talk with your doctor about your systems. We have lots on information on this topic, I've listed a few articles below and could even send you a book that I found to be most helpful to me.
