Can I take my oestrogel on a plane?

We often get asked this question by women going holiday wondering whether they can take oestrogel in their hand luggage.

The good news is yes you can! Oestrogel is usually packaged in a pump action bottle that is 100mls and is therefore within the current guidelines for volume of liquid allowed by most airlines.

You will need to put the oestrogel bottle in a clear plastic bag when you go through security and it will be useful to have a sticker on the bottle, (or on the box) to show that it is a prescription medication.

If you worry that your suitcase is going to end up on the wrong plane, carrying your gel with you at all times is at least one thing less to worry about as you travel in these tricky times!
