Hormone therapy

Posted , 2 users are following.

i have been inserting a vaginal hormone suppository for 3 weeks due to atrophy. I broke out in hives a few days ago. Saw a doctor and was prescribed prednisone and told me to take Zyrtec and BENADRYL at bedtime. Hives disappeared for several hours yesterday. i did not take BENADRYL at bedtime since i was hive free. When I woke up, hives returned in abdomen. Has anyone had the hives due to estrogen replacement?

    Hi Maryann

    I am assuming you have been diagnosed with Atrophic Vaginitis? Are you using VAGIFEM ? or YUVAFEM ? This is interesting as i too have Atrophic Vaginitis and unfortunately have Chronic Urticaria ( hives ) also....so i started to wonder if the VAGIFEM inserted vaginally could be the cause of hives but i broke out in the hives before i started using vagifem. its the only th

    ing that help me feel normal with the ATROPHIC vaginitis. Please keep me posted. i wish you well!

    Best,

      Hi Wendy,

      Yes, I was diagnosed with atrophic vaginitis 2 years ago. I tried the MONA LISA TOUCH laser therapy twice and it only madr things worse. My Dr. prescribed INTRAROSA a vaginal hormone suppoistory. I am taking it for 3 weeks. I am starting to think that this suppository is causing the hive breakout. I see my GYN tomorrow and discuss this with her. Thanks for your reply. Hope you feel better soon. i will let you know what my Dr. says.

      Best wishes,

      Maryann

      HI Maryann

      Ask your doctor about VAGIFEM. Its the only thing that makes me feel normal and have quality of life. I have no side effects. I have heard that MONA LISA has mixed reviews....and some ladies still need vagifem with the treatments. let me know what your doctor says tomorrow. i wish you well and hope you dont have anymore hive breakouts. Have you had any stress lately as sometimes that could be a cause for hives.

      Hi Wendy,

      I truly do not have stress in my life. I am blessed with a great family and friends. My health issues are stressful though. I will ask my Dr. about VAGIFEM tomorrow. Thanks for your advice.
