How long before I can start taking a smaller dose?

Estrace vaginal cream contains estrogen. After menopause many women develop vaginal atrophy - a condition characterized by thinning, drying and inflammation of the vaginal walls due to reduced estrogen levels. Vaginal estrogen therapy helps to treat the cause of vaginal atrophy by increasing the levels of estrogen in the vaginal walls where it is needed. Typically women use it daily for one to three weeks and then one to three times a week thereafter. It is diificult to predict when you will be able to reduce your dose as everyone is different.
