In a survey presented at the 23rd Annual Meeting of the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) it showed that using estrogen creams in the vaginal area is one of the most effective ways to reduce vaginal dryness and all symptoms related to dryness.
In my practice I use bio-identical hormones which reduce the risk associated with conventional hormone replacement therapy.
Vaginal dryness is a menopausal symptom that needs to get more attention because it has physical and emotional consequences for women during the menopausal transition and beyond.
If you are experiencing vaginal dryness and want relief, talk to your doctor to learn more about your options.
