Having suddenly become very dry down there, I tried vagifem recently on the recommendation of my GP who said it will only get worse with time (yeah, thanks for that cheery thought!). I swelled up so much inside over the first week of daily use that I had to stop - by the end of the week I couldn't even get a finger in, let alone my hubby! No irritation though. The swelling then rapidly subsided and I tried non-hormonal rehydration with Regelle (water based vaginal moisturiser) - after just one application I started to swell up again, so stopped that too. These 2 products have no ingredients n common that I may be allergic to. I am reluctant to try anything else, fearful of the toll this is taking on my vag. Tried hyalofemme some time ago on the outer bits to help with fragile skin there post severe thrush infection but that just stung me. My consultant is mystified by this swelling. Has anyone else experienced this? It would be really useful to know. And, also, did you find the cause?
