I jus t discovered this site yesterdayand feel relieved that I am not going mad. I am 59 years old and have been on eostrogen only patches for almost 10 years. Six months ago I started to reduce the dosage and after a couple of weeks the awful itching and burning started, I have terrible vulval itching at night which incidently is when I have hot flushes. I am currently trying ortho-gynest cream and even trying to apply this was a very painful experience at first, but last night for the first time in weeks I had a full nights sleep. Is there a way I can maintain this how often will I need to use the cream, and is it safe to use the patches at the same time. I would like to be able to come off the HRT but am not sure if this would start the other symptoms all over again. I would appreciate any tips or advice its good to know there are other women out there who understand what this awful condition feels like.
