“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!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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 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.”
