Were you looking for information about Estrace? Estras is a common misspelling of Estrace.
 
Estrace® (estradiol) is a prescription medication that may help treat several conditions related to menopause. Specifically, Estrace can help alleviate menopausal symptoms (such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness), prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, relieve the symptoms of certain types of cancer, and replace hormones in younger women whose ovaries do not produce enough estrogen. However, Estrace is not suitable for everyone. Some side effects of Estrace include headaches, nausea, and breast pain.
