Vaginal estrogen products: Use them to keep things normal down there// Vaginal estrogen is a safe and effective way to treat the genitourinary system after menopause. This video discussed the safety of vaginal estrogen and the many different vaginal estrogen products that are commercially available for vaginal atrophy. Vaginal estrogen is also good for painful intercourse, recurrent urinary tract infections, and dryness with even sitting or standing. Learn all about the vaginal estrogen products that I often recommend.

I am almost 2 decades past Surgical menopause and I’ve been having more symptoms lately. I had prolapse surgery about two months ago so I ended up at a gynecologist that I searched for that specialized in menopause and she’s putting me on estrogen cream to try and a little testosterone, but never in my lifetime has any gynecologist ever ever ever discussed this with me and my body and what I could do to help it shame on the community for giving up on women’s bodies post menopausal Shame on you doctors! Not you Dr. Heather you’re amazing, I wish you were in Chicago. I would be signing up to be your patient tomorrow!

Thank you for this! It is good to hear a female that understands females. How many females have been to a Mississippi urologists and were brushed off by these docs and found out later they had kidney stones, a terrible infection, or blood in their urine or something simple like needing estrogen as this female doc suggested? How many found out they had post menopausal symptoms, or parathyroid issues causing kidney problems causing kidney stones from high calcium counts? Females have no recourse here so it is so good to find this out from a female doctor. Thank you! Thank you! It is refreshing to hear intelligence and from a doctor that cares!

Thanks for all of your wonderfully informative videos. I have been on HRT since perimenopause and will continue forever. I did start having issues with OAB recently. I had seen your collab video with the female urologist, so I asked my doctor for the Estring prescription. It worked wonderfully. After about 7 weeks, though, I had a full-up menstral cycle. I removed the Estring and it stopped. Has anyone else had this issue? I am wondering if I should go to Invexxy or Yuvafem instead. Any comments appreciated!

Thank you for your thoroughness. You stated that the topic is not always discussed enough and I agree. I have a question. If a doctor gives vaginal estradiol and no warning labels or lots of details show in the same way pharmacy meds show, does it mean it is a compounded medication? I’m disappointed my doctor did not explain the difference and asked me to make the choice. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and expertise.

Oh. My. GOSH!!! My jaw dropped when you brought up painful urination that WASN'T an infection! I am a 37-year-old Triple Negative breast cancer survivor and am on Tamoxifen to suppress estrogen because my tumor had SMALL markers of estrogen. I've been on Tamoxifen for about 8 months now. 3-4 months in, I noticed UTI-like painful, frequent urination. I saw my doctor and had a urine culture which came back 'normal'... but how could it be normal?? I was in pain all day, every day... I began to think the chemo/medication potentially gave me some type of bladder cancer (every pain makes me think I have cancer again.. ack!). To top it off, my fiance and I haven't been able to have sex for almost a year because Tamoxifen has put me into early menopause and I have vaginal atrophy. My partner is very girthy, so sex is impossible right now which makes me feel 'broken' and I'm sure he's frustrated, as well. I began taking D3 supplements once a day a few weeks ago and my bladder pain has disappeared, thank goodness, BUT I had no idea it could be related to low estrogen from medicated menopause! That makes SO much sense. I've reached out to my OB-Gyn to talk about potentially prescribing vaginal estrogen to counteract the atrophy from Tamoxifen. Fingers crossed!! Thanks for sharing your knowledge with the world :)

I know this was a year ago, but I'm 12 years postmenopausal and natural progesterone ( not Progestin, the synthetic kind) really helps to lubricate me naturally just by taking progesterone drops orally or rubbing the cream into my wrists/feet (you don't need to put into vagina). It seems to help make my vaginal tissues inside more "cushioned", so I'm wondering if it heals similar to estrogen/estradiol. Hope this helps 😊.

Thank you Dr. Heather for this amazing informative video. My Dr. has me on Imvexxy once per week instead of twice, plus I take oral estrogen and progesterone. The oral (very small doses) was prescribed by my GP. When I wasn't feeling any different in my vaginal area, I sought out a "menopause specialist" in my area and she is the one that introduced me to the Imvexxy. She also said it would be alright to stay on the oral estrogen and progesterone as well.....Is this ok to do? The vaginal estrogen is AMAZING! I am 51 and it makes SO much difference. I cannot believe how many symptoms (I had no idea) that came with menopause. I LOVE vaginal estrogen and hope I can take it forever:) Thank you so much for all your time and information you share with us all. You truly make a difference ❤️

Thank you! So helpful. What about the E-string? I did not do well on the cream so am on the E-string now. I like it. Is there more I can do for dryness?

I discontinued using Estrace due to its messiness, but since then, I haven't felt the same. I'm considering asking my doctor to prescribe it for me again.

Thanks so much for this video Dr Hirsch. I have all of these symptoms. I also have painful bowel movements but they come and go- I might go for months without them and then have them for a few weeks...could this be tied to my pelvic area needing estrogen too? Could it cause painful bowel movements? Any advise or if you have heard of this I'd appreciate any info you can provide.

Ty for the video. I went on HRT when my period stopped at 54. It helped for hot flashes, however it gave me bad melasma! I was on the patch 0.05 and a progesterone IUD. I have been off it for 6 months but the headaches and hot flashes are off it. Is there anything else I can do?

Hi! Just stumbling across your video . I am not menopausal but still am using vaginal estrogen. Does this type of estrogen effect menstrual cycle at all? & Will it effect cervical mucus? Thank you!

So glad I found you. Just left my doctors because I’m experiencing these symptoms. I can’t decipher whether it’s my bladder or vagina. I’ve been tested for UTIs, STDs, BV and yeast and all come back negative. I’ve been given antibiotics and I’m still in discomfort. It feels like irritation and urinary urgency that comes and goes. So he prescribed me vegifem to rule out atrophy. I’m so glad you confirmed the safety of these medications that he had mentioned too. I hope this helps me. I’ve been dealing with this discomfort for 3 months.

Are you feeling better now? Which form of vaginal estrogen did he prescribe for you? I’ve been on vaginal estrogen for 3 yrs yet still am like you. I feel like I have a perpetual UTI, but tests and swabs always come back normal.

@@LoveABun Yes, I am. I didn’t end up using the vegifem. My Functional Pharmacist prescribed me Estriol 0.1% vaginal cream. It has stopped the UTI like symptoms. I also stopped drinking coffee. I feel like coffee made things worse. Whenever I feel that UTI sensation I apply a little bit of that cream around and in my labia, and it’s been working great. I also take probiotics. These changes have stopped whatever was going on.

Thank you so much for your video! Very informative! I’ve heard a lot about various hyaluronic acid products for the vagina. Can you please discuss those? Are they considered only a lubricant? Or, can they also affect the cellular structure of the vagina (similar to estradiol creams)? Very confused about their purpose. Thank you!

Can you do a video on the Femring? (Estradiol acetate), please. There is a dr on KZbin claiming it’s synthetic…. My dr told me it was bio identical. So much mis-information that’s confusing. I just started using the femring 0.05 changed every 3 months. I was using the patch but it wouldn’t stay on so my dr changed me to the ring. I have noticed a uptick in headaches with the switch. Thanks.

Hi doctor....does one have to use the vaginal estrogen capsules month after month...or does the use of a box last over some time?
