I have been post menopausal for 10 years now. About 6 years ago I developed the worse case of vaginal dryness. It was horribly painful and made intercouse impossible. I was prescribed estring by my ob gyn and had very little change and it is ridiculously expensive. I talked to my new hormone Dr. and he prescribed Estriol cream. After 9 days all symtoms have disappeared completely! I am delighted!! Also, as the estriol works to rebuild collegon and elasticity to the vaginal area I am dabbing around my mouth to see if it will help me there as well. I will let you know. This is a miracle to me as the estring was over $400. w/o insurance and the cream was $75. and will last 3-4 months or more. Yay!!!
I have a question to put out there. 2 days into using it I noticed soreness and slight cramping around the ovaries/groin area. I thought I had a UTI but no back ache or burning urine. On the 8th day the soreness has lessened but now my nipples are hard and feel bruised. Much like pre menstruation. Does anyone else experience symtoms of this nature? I am thinking possibly it is my body reawakening which I wholeheartedly welcome and I am conferring with my Doctor about it. Since I just started administering it and cut back the dose after tomorrow. I am thinking this will back off. We shall see. It is a welcome trade off to the excrutiating pain I was experiencing and impossibility of romance with my husband. At 55 I am not ready to say good bye to that part of my life and it has been on hold for too long already.
Input and thoughts welcome please!
