How long did you take before it made a difference for your comfort level during sex? Anyone notice a difference in sensation? I'm 10 yrs postmenopausal and the last 3 years not wanting to have sex due to this problem which I hope will be remedied. Some of the side effects scare me. What have you noticed initially? Any suggestions at all would be helpful. Thx
Atrophic vaginitis is an inflammation or irritation of the vagina caused by thinning and shrinking of the tissues of the vagina and decreased lubrication of the vaginal wall making for painful intercourse. This is due to a lack of estrogen. Vaginal atrophy can be treated with topical estrogen including Vagifem. The estrogen tablets are inserted in the vagina daily initially for 2 weeks then reduced to twice weekly. Some people may see improvements as early as at 8 weeks of treatment with most people seeing major improvements of symptoms after 12 weeks.
