I was wondering if there are any women who have tried vagifem and what comments (both good or bad) they have about their experience with it?
The link below has only a few reviews of Vagifem... you may find them useful.
I used the Vagifem for aprox two and a half years. Had no issues with it other than a very strong rebound effect going from loading dose to maintenance dose as apparently I am very sensitive to changing hormone levels. I was then put on a topical estradiol gel to get control of the severe menopausal symptoms. After several months of being on both and stabilizing, the company changed the tabs from 25 mcg.s to 10 which was ok because I was on the topical gel. It took 9 months for me to wean off the 10 mcg.Vagifem while on the topical gel. I think if I had just been put on the maintenance dose in the begining--i.e. 2 times a week--I'd still be on it without the topical gel, doing just fine. Was cheaper too than the topical gel I now use.
Hopes this helps! Take care and be well! Lady of howard
