Evalon cream contains the female hormone estriol, which belongs to the class of medicines called hormone replacement therapy. Use Evalon cream as instructed by your doctor and follow all the directions carefully. Before using Evalon cream, inform the doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy or breastfeeding and about your detailed medical history.
