Substitutes to Vagifem:

2. Cyclical therapy: Estrogen taken daily via a pill or via a patch and a separate progesterone pill (such as Provera) for a certain number of days per month.
3. Continuous therapy: Estrogen plus low dose progesterone in one or two pills taken every day.
But please do not change/alter the medication that your doctor has prescribed without first seeking his or her advice, please well & safe!
