    most of us are on it 2 to 5 times a week forever, If we miss a dose we know it !  Takes a long time to even become 70% symptom free

      Thanks for the response.. Just wanted to let you know after what seemed like a rocky start. I am symptom free as long as I use on my set schedule. I use .5 estrogen on Thurs eve and on sat I use the progesterone and testosterone. And I have had no issues for a month.

    Estriol vaginal cream is usually used everyday for 2 weeks then 2-3 times a week. However, if dryness is severe you may have to use it more often. I sometimes recommend using a smaller amount every day instead of the total dose 2-3 times a week
