BlisselⓇ is simply dosed for both initial and maintenance therapy
How to start therapy and maintenance1
BlisselⓇ can be started any time after the manifestation of symptoms.
Initial treatment: One applicator-dose of vaginal gel per day for 3 weeks (suitably at bedtime).
Maintenance treatment: One applicator-dose of vaginal gel twice a week (suitably at bedtime) is recommended. An evaluation of treatment continuation after 12 weeks should be carried out by the physician.
For initiation and continuation of treatment of post-menopausal symptoms, the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration should be used.
For oestrogen products for vaginal application of which the systemic exposure to the oestrogen remains within the normal postmenopausal range, it is not recommended to add a progestagen.
A missed dose should be administered as soon as remembered, unless it is more than 12 hours overdue. In the latter case the missed dose should be skipped, and the next dose should be administered at the normal time.

How your patient can use BlisselⓇ1
BlisselⓇ is applied into the vagina using the dose-marked applicator. “Instructions for use” are included in the information leaflet.
One applicator-dose (applicator filled to the mark) gives a dose of 1 g vaginal gel containing 50 micrograms of estriol. The filled applicator should be inserted into the vagina and emptied. BlisselⓇ should be given preferably in the evening.
How to explain BlisselⓇ use to your patient
To apply the gel, the patient should lie down, with knees bent and spread apart.
The open end of the applicator should be gently inserted deep into the vagina and the plunger slowly pushed all the way down, as far as it will go, to empty the gel into the vagina.
Release her confidence from within.
