... Osphena for a year it didn't help. Any suggestions?
A lot Of the internal Creams don't work well for people. Try switching to Premarin pill. I've been on since my full hysterectomy at age 25. So for 16 years I went from .50 to 1.25 (that's the highest dose) after medically induced menopause 3 times and again a few years ago when the estrogen dose was wearing off... Well just stay on top of it. (Menopause is awful) Out of all the different brands, Premarin pill form is by far the best. Call your dr and they may have samples in the office as they are usually left there from the drug rep or have them call It in, shouldn't warrant a visit as you just need to try a different way of getting The estrogen into your body ! Good luck!!
I am 67 years old and was having problems so my gynaecologist gave me samples of Osphena. I took those and then got a script. I can say that I took it for about 2 months and it was beginning to work really well. However, I started having some problems with my vision (blurry), and when I read the side effects it listed that as a possible side effect of Osphena. Needless to say I stopped taking the drug at once. The only thing is that was 2 years ago and I am still having problems with my vision. I went to an ophthalmologist and was diagnosed with a condition call Recurrent Erosion Syndrome. So now I am thinking the medication may have had nothing to do with my vision problem.I am even considering asking for another script and trying it again. I will caution you though to read carefully ALL the side effects that can be involved with this drug. Then talk with your doctor to see if it would be safe for you to try it. I can say that in the short time I took it I began to see definite physical changes just as the drug describes, and it was very encouraging.
I had a hysterectomy at the age of 23 with one ovary remaining. I am 57 y/o and just recently was put on premarin vag cream; due to extremely painful intercourse due to dryness. It didn't seem to work, so my gyn put me on Vagifem10mcg, insert tablet into vagina 2 times per week. I can't honestly say it helps as I have not had sexual intercourse since the switch. But it is an option. For hot flashes, etc I started taking Black Cohosh 40 mg twice daily. I have not had any hot flashes since. I never thought it would cure the hot/cold flashes I was getting, but it was a blessing in disguise for me. You can find it over the counter in the vitamin section. You might want to try that also. Hoping you find relief.
