All things bladder related / Re: Vagifem
« on: December 04, 2010, 12:49:18 AM »
Hi Sandypiper,

I am 53 yrs old and post menopausal. I also began taking Vagifem about 1 year ago due to vaginal dryness (twice a week) along w/bio-identical HRT and it helped immensely.  They are now taking it off the market per my mail-order drug company so my doctor is now prescribing estriol 0.5 mg in a cream which is inserted vaginally twice a week.  A compounding pharmacy prepares it for me.  It has also worked very well and per my doctor, it should work better than the Vagifem.  You may ask your gynecologist about it.

I also had bladder infections about 2 yrs ago in spite of taking oral HRT and finally saw a urologist and he ran all of the tests and told me there was actually nothing wrong w/my bladder.  His physician's asst (female) told me to always urinate after sex and use Summer's Eve cleanser for washing the vaginal area before and after sex.  Ever since I began using the Summer's Eve cleanser, I have not had another bladder infection.
