What can I use instead of HRT for vaginal atrophy?

I cannot take HRT because of a strong family history of breast cancer & uterine issues. My Gyn and breast surgeon agree that I'm "in between a rock and a hard place". No kidding.

Thank you for your prompt attention Helena. I have been to this website.
I also found that the empowher.her website has given me trouble entering various things: i.e. username, password, birthdate, saying that I'm not in a group (when I've created one!), etc..that's why I have 3 entries of my question.

Oh, that's ok! I wish I had more information to give you! HRT seems to be the best and preferred treatment. I'm sorry this is not an option for you. If I come across anything else, I will update this post.
