For Atrophic Vaginitis "I had a hysterectomy 10 years ago and having dryness problem so Dr prescribed this. After using this for about 6 weeks I started cramping like I was beginning to start my period again and my breasts were hurting so bad just like the old days! Called my doctor was taken off of it immediately due to previous breast cancer and she said the estrogen from it gets in the bloodstream."

For Atrophic Vaginitis "Painful sex for year and a half. Was at my wits end, finally went to the doctor and described severe pain and dryness not relieved. She prescribed this cream. Miracle drug! No more pain, dryness improving. My husband and I are thrilled! Go on their website for a coupon. Almost 300 bucks but I only had to pay $25.00"

For Atrophic Urethritis "I have used Estrace samples for 6 months or so..... I ran out and went to buy another tube... 375.00!! And my insurance didn't cover any of it. (Costco was 325.00) I called my doctor and they gave me a coupon, but my insurance didn't work with it. So over priced... and my insurance just went up a 100 dollars a month... I just can't buy a medicine that is so over priced. I thought it would be 50 dollars or so... there must be something else we can use? Also, the information I read said: estrogens may increase the chances of getting cancer of the uterus. Why would we want to take this? I've got to do more homework and find something better!!"

For Atrophic Vaginitis "The patches stopped working so this was last on the list to try. Dr. gave me a sample to try. Not very effective and Way Way overpriced. Will be trying compounded version. Wake up drug companies there are a lot of us baby boomers suffering from menopause who will not go quietly into the night. Especially when we're expected to keep working until 66."

For Atrophic Vaginitis "I'm only giving Estrace Cream a 3 rating on the scale due to there being issues with the product. I have been using this product for a couple of years. It did help until the last few months, I went from using it 2-3 times a week to needing it every other day. My frustration comes from the amount that actually is in the tube. It says there is 42.5 grams in the tube, I alway keep track of the amount in the tube and end up with about 24 grams out of the tube in the end. Has anyone else kept track of this? Also, I can't afford it when I went yesterday to pick up a new tube and they wanted $290 for 1 tube?!! Why would it be this expensive? That was even after my insurance paid a portion."

For Atrophic Vaginitis "I've been married for 35 years. After menopause, intercourse became impossible due to dryness and pain. I do not go to the doctor as often as I should, so I suffered for years, and tried to find "natural remedies" on my own to no avail. I finally gave in and went to a gynecologist. I was embarrassed to even tell him, but I knew I had to do something. He was familiar with the problem and put me on Estrace cream. Within days, I was a NEW person. Saved my life and my marriage. Excellent results and fast!"

For Atrophic Vaginitis "I have suffered with endometriosis since I was 16 years of age... needless to say they did full histerectomy at 34 years of age, and still suffered painful sex after having my hormones shots each month , I was still having pain, ,, my doctor prescribed this cream and so far so good. Hopefully it continues to help me, this is embarrassing to women especially at this age. .."

For Atrophic Vaginitis "this past Feb I literally thought my insides were being ripped out. Expected to see them lying on the floor after sex one Monday afternoon.I was throbbing and hurting the rest of the evening and into the the morning.The next day I called my GYN and begged to be seen. she diagnosed my with this and several rips. She gave me an Estrace cream sample and prescription along with one for the rips. I do not have medical insurance.I healed the rips with coconut oil and started the cream 1 oz 2 times a week, She says it is not absorbed. Well, all I know is that my hot flashes have lessened, sex is no pain and if I don't use it like I'm supposed to, all that changes! I'm blessed to have friends in the medical field that can keep me in samples."

For Atrophic Vaginitis "Have been on this for four weeks. First two weeks 1 gram daily then twice per week. Just a few days after starting breasts felt full and tender like I was breastfeeding, gained up to 4 lbs. Did the trick for relations with husband. I'll be deciding if it's worth it ( physical effects and possible cancer of uterus) when I go back for a follow up visit this week."

For Atrophic Urethritis "I started using Estrace because of frequent urination with burning, and dryness. I started menopause 4 yrs ago. When I use Estrace after 2 days I have to stop due to bleeding, and cramping that lasts for a week. I'm not a fan!"

For Atrophic Urethritis "I have been using Estrace cream for 11 years and it's been working. I use about 1/3 applicator every 5 or 6 days. Suddenly, it stopped working. I don't have a bladder infection, I already went through yeast infection treatment both Diflucan and vaginal creams, and my vagina still burns. The Estrace cream relieves it, but only for about 6 or 10 hours. I am 70 and not sexually active. I know years ago the urologist said everything look kind of shriveled up and dry down there. Could the hormone cream just not work anymore? Now what do I do?"

For Atrophic Vaginitis "Very sexually active until severe abrupt menopausal symptoms at 55. AV symptoms the most bothersome as overnight I shrunk up, dried up, itched, burned and tore. Intercourse was out of the question. Dr. gave me a sample of Estrace Vaginal cream. I admit I was afraid to use it and had little faith that it would help so I used only a pearl size amount on clean dry skin every night for 2 weeks. That ammt. Is sufficient to cover all the external parts and more, it emulsifies. I am COMPLETELY healed as far as pain with intercourse and also pain upon urination. It was a MIRACLE for me. Side note: If you stop using it (3X a week after the initial 2wk nightly use) you'll be back at square 1. I give Estrace a 10+ rating C: A tube lasted 6 months"

For Atrophic Vaginitis "Someone replied to my first response that I need to wait 6 months. Well its been way over 2 years now, and I am still tearing and having that stinging feeling. I use 100% organic coconut oil for a lube, as my OBGYN said to try that too. I have no side effects from the coconut oil. I used both and then after "enduring" sex, I was left with a couple of tears that were bleeding and stinging. I am going to call her back and tell her I need extra strength. Even after the 1 mg amount, bathing the walls of my vagina, its still not enough. I am only 55, and did not think, this was going to be the end of me. My husband is 13 years older than me, and I am the one that has to turn him away because I am not healed enough to try again"

For Atrophic Vaginitis "I have been taking this to see if it will help with my vaginismus, which is where the vaginal clamps down during any sort of penetration due to a trauma. I think it has helped mildly, but not cured my condition - which is not surprising, since it's mostly mental."

For Atrophic Urethritis "My urologist has just put me on the cream 3 times a week for preventing uti's. I just started using it so not sure if it will help with this but I pray that it does because the past year I have had one UTI after another and I am tired if being on antibiotics all the time. The antibiotics are so hard on my gut. Anyways no libido and hopefully that will improve too. So far no bad side effects either so that's good. I will be. 60 in may. I always was very active sexually now I don't even want to be touched and my husband is not happy but understanding. So anyways will report back and hopefully this cream is a miracle worker!"

For Atrophic Vaginitis "Extraordinarily overpriced since it is plant based - which means it is probably just soy. Even with my medicare drug insurance, it was going to be over $200. I called a Pharmacy where I used to get my compounded hormones - $27 plus shipping. Suggest you do too. "

For Atrophic Vaginitis "So - I was prescribed this and was shocked when I went to the pharmacy and she said $135. Dr. never mentioned this. I said "doesn't my insurance pay anything on this?" She checked and said "It's normally $350.00" or something. I was really angry. Angry, embarassed and this whole experience is humiliating to women. Why do I think a prescription of Viagra has a co-pay of like $10?? IT'S TIME TO STOP DISCRIMINATING AGAINST WOMEN. Especially us older women!!! That is ridiculous!!! I did not buy it, I was so angry. I may.... but I doubt it. I was prescribed this with an oral progesterone -- any one have experience with these two items combined? Thanks for letting me air that - take heed, Big Pharma."

For Atrophic Vaginitis "Side effects of break through bleeding and little relief from thin tissue does not warrant the cost if over $300 with co-pay of $75. This is price gouging for a cream that should cost no more than $20 at the very most -- and I'm being generous. Over priced meds are out of control. I won't bother using Estrace anymore."

For Atrophic Vaginitis "Used as directed and not sure it did much, truthfully. I have been having bio-identical estrogen and testosterone implants and that does seem to be very effective. Also, OTC product called Luvena (Restorative Vaginal Moisturizer, pH balanced) is super effective and doesn't cause the stinging and break through bleeding of Estrace. Luvena is significantly cheaper than insanely over priced Estrace ($300 or a $72 co-pay). Really, Estrace should cost about $15 and not the criminally high price it is Bottom line: Not a fan of Estrace and certainly not worth the $72 co-pay for stinging and bleeding for me at ten years post menopause."

For Atrophic Vaginitis "I was experiencing very painful intercourse with tearing. I have used this medication exactly 3 times it has improved sex 99% already. Some pain on insurtion, but none during intercourse for the first time in years! I have no doubt it will get better as my body's estrogen levels improve.. So thankful. I am 55 yrs old."
