My doctor has just diagnosed Atrophic Vaginitis and prescribed Vagifem. (UTI test was negative). I understand that this takes several weeks (8-12 weeks) to kick in. I have burning on urination and and soreness. I don't have itching but I do seem to have 4 or 5 bumps/lesions around my vulva which are very sensitive to touch - ie wiping after urination, sitting down, wearing pants - like a needle being inserted! Unfortunately, I also have some discharge which means I need to wear a panty liner which I know is synthetic so not ideal but as I work full time, I do need some protection . I'm drinking lots of water, one glass with bicarb to make the urine less acid. I've stopped using soap in the vaginal area too.
I'm trying to keep some sense of proportion but I'm finding the continuous discomfort very wearing and dispiriting. Is there ANYTHING that will provide some instant relief for the pain until the Vagifem does its job? I've been trying Vagisan moisturising cream but it has not provided even temporary relief.
I was wondering if I could use Estriol cream externally and Vagifem at the same time - ie would this provide any quick relief externally?
