Was hoping to make it a full year, but don't want to get bad again and have to pay for the whole series. Wondering if anyone has done the yearly treatment yet, and what were your results?

    Developed vaginal atrophy from the pill.

    if I stop taking the pill and my oestrogen levels go back to normal, I'm assuming the atrophy should just heal itself in time am I mistaken? Or am I just hoping this uncomfortable life ends?
