Not only was I having extreme long lasting headaches that sometimes crossed over into the migraine zone, but I was also experiencing severe back pain and extreme vaginal inflammation.
I went back to my health care provider approx 4 -5 times looking for help/relief/answers - NOT ONE of those doctors or the PHARMACIST shared with me the side effects of Vagifem.
Proceed with caution! Hope you are feeling better!
