just diagnosed with vagonal atrophy

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am a little scared because I am on estrogen and progesterone pills.....a low dose....., but now my dr gave me Estrace samples to use for the VA. I will see Dr again in 7 days to see if anytHong improves. I noticed a pill insertion mentioned on the forum. What things have helped you all? Also, how to you keep things comfortable when you have intercourse? My husband and I haven't been able to do anything because I have been terribly messed up. My dr says to be patient and things will get better once we get estrogen "down there". Thanks for any advice. I am nervous.

    Oh dear, poor you. It is good that you have joined this forum as ladies have lots of advice for each other.

    lots of lube is needed for intercourse.

    think you will have to see how the estrace works for you.
