Hi there, to all the menopausal women out there. Sorry guys this is a question for the girls. I don't look 50 but my body is starting to go through menopause. I had hot flashes and night sweats for about 2 months then it went away and now I have started to get dry in my eyes and vaginaly. So I have started to use Replens. Seems to work so far. My question to you girls is have any of you tried Replens or Vagifem yet and how is it working for you? Thanks for everyones replies!
I've used it and it works great, but its a moisturizer and when you stop using it the benefits go away. I thought it was too expensive to continue use. If you have a really hard time with the dryness, first your eyes, artificial tears help alot, I use systane, because its a gel and lasts longer, and your doc can help with estrogen cream for your vagina. This will help.

Hey girl, This isn't a funny question, but I had to giggle a little bit when I read what you said about only for the girls.lol. I definately think I'm in the beginning of premenopause. I haven't used either one of them... yet. But I understand what the symptoms are like. Don't you just hate what we women have to go through sometimes.lol. Not that the guys don't have issues too. I know they do. lol. Not a direct answer..more of a comment. But I hope whatever works well for you. Send me a message sometime too. Would love to hear from you. You're friend, Ruthie
