I saw the GP yesterday who diagnosed Atrophic Vaginitis. I'm 69. I've been using Sylk, which was prescribed by the nurse practitioner, without an examination, but it hasn't been particularly successful for me. As I didn't really want to use hormone treatment, unless I had to, the GP has now prescribed Replens for me to try and I've to go back to her in six weeks. If this doesn't work, then we'll be talking about topical hormone treatment. The difficulty is that I am in discomfort al the time - soreness, itching etc., so this isn't purely a sexually related problem.
Have others used Replens? How did you get on with it? Did it help? What about topical hormone treatment? How easy is it to use and how successful is it?
I'd be interested in hearing the experiences of others who have this problem, particularly if it's an on-going situation and not purely sex related.
