Hi to everyone.
I'm new to this site, and I would like to hear sound opinions on what my question please.
I was with my doctor last week and after examination I was told that I have atrophic vaginitis. I am not symptomatic except for a tiny bit of spotting now and then. I was prescribed Estradiol (a medicine called Vagifem). I was quite happy to use this until I read the insert, it mentions that there is a slight increased risk of ovarian cancer. I saw my young sister suffer and die of ovarian cancer and I am obviously worried that I might be putting myself at more risk if using this product. I am very reluctant to use these tablets. I am not concerned about my vagina being atrophied, I went to the doctor to get myself checked in case I needed to go for further exams. So my question is: to use this Estradiol or not to use it?
Has anyone any experience with this product? Is there a doctor that can help me out here?
