"I went on the medicine at age 65 due to extreme dryness and constant yeast infections. The fantastic side effect is now I fall to sleep within one hour of going to bed. For six years, ever since menopause, I have had trouble falling asleep (averaging only 4 hrs of rest). The only change in my life was the Premarin pill. It helped the dryness and now I can function with 8 hours of sleep!"
"I've been on it almost 3 years. I had to start using this in my mid twenties. I can use very little to the normal amount every 3 days or so. I go by how I feel more then anything. I do notice belly swelling the next day and I do get headaches if I use to much. Other then that I love this and I'll keep using it. Make sure you get your yearly check ups/blood work and you'll be fine."
Frequently asked questions
"I was prescribed with Premarin vaginal cream to use for 2 weeks prior pap. I had total hysterectomy 9 months ago. I experienced severe acid stomach from this medicine. I have a history of stomach acid so I didn't put the 2 together. I took my usual med, avoided food that could trigger acid but to no avail. I suffered for 5 days of severe acid stomach until I decided to stop the cream that night. The following day, my stomach still sore but not acidic. I woke up with a headache. I didn't think the cream will affect me this way since its effects are limited in vaginal area. I was wrong. I can confirm that my acid stomach was due to Premarin vaginal cream."
"I used this cream for one month. I had to stop because it made my breast hurt so bad. I have a history of lumps in my breast so of course when I found out this cream increase your chance for breast cancer I had to stop. Will not use again."
Are you taking this medicine?
"Have been on premarin vaginal for about 5 months. Appeared to have no side effects with vaginal dryness but after about 4 months, hair started thinning and last month gastrointestinal issues: burping, heartburn etc."
"I was given this to help with Vaginal Atrophy that resulted in painful UTI like symptoms and painful sex. By the third week I got limited relief from those symptoms, but had debilitating dizziness and horrible hot flashes. This stuff took me from having had a handful of hot flashes in my entire life to 5 or 6 a night. Not taking it any more."
"Bad, real bad, avoid!"
"Feeling great for 4 months. Pain returning the last 3 days"

"Premarin is a complete game changer. I had a 10cm mass on ovary and uterine hyperplasia. I thought things couldn't get any worse with pain and discomfort. This resulted in full hysterectomy and oophorectomy. Then, it went from bad to worse. Atrophy. Sex was so painful I gave up. Even urination was a challenge some days. This went on for a year. Then I started using Premarin. Within a week, things started to improve. I hesitated using Premarin because of some bad advice from the internet. Premarin is a complete game changer. I wish I would have tried it sooner. I have my sex life back and feel like my old self. Incredible!"
