Hello Ladies I would really like your thoughts on HRT and LS .
I was given HRT oeastrogen only with pessaries Nov 17 due to feeling sore and tender in my vagina .
The pessaries did not work at all and made things worse as damp all of the time.
If i am honest my LS worsened although not diagnosed untill I saw my Gynae in April 18.
Things have not improved and have regular flare ups . I have changed diet and take suppliments.
After reading an article on here and i do aolagise to the wonderful Lady who posted as i cannot find your name . It was regarding St Johns wort and how its helped menapausal symptoms and LS .
Also due to my fear of increased risk of breat cancer I have started to come off HRT.
Week two and one tablet this week and that will be it . No adverse sweats yet or power surges as i call them and so far so good .
I have started St Johns Wort a few days ago . So far too early to see if that helps at all .
Thoughts ladies please and experience of HRT and LS would be very much appreciated x

Apolagise for spelling note to self do not post from phone 🤦🏻???
Hi Susan - I was prescribed oestrogen pessaries for atrophy of cervix and encouraged to continue after LS symptoms started. I don't think there was any link. I requested to change to cream as pessaries tended not to dissolve properly, and I have found it helpful for moisturizing and restoring outer labia plumpness. However it seems to have had little effect on my LS. GP says it's ok to continue and when I expressed concern about breast cancer as it is in my family, she said there was little risk from using oestrogen topically in vaginal area. I am continuing it as I feel it makes a difference and might help counteract labia minora shrinkage.
