Ive been using Ovestin successfully for six years and have never had a problem.

About three weeks ago i noticed a really bad burning sensation almost immediately after inserting it. I managed to speak to a Dr this morning and he has changed my prescription o Vagifem.

I'm wondering if anyone else has had these issues and has Ovestin changed the ingredients? The pharmacist seemed to suggest they had.

Any advice would be very welcome.

    im not a great expert on it but i was prescibed a couple of weeks ago i had instant burning so stopped immediately just assumed i was allergic to the cream, also ended up with thrush! so im not sure others on here may have more of an insight.
