I have tried Replens estrogen cream twice a week for vaginal dryness, and physical therapy, but it's still rough. Wish there was more research so women wouldn't suffer. We want pleasure too.

For vaginal atrophy use Vagisil pessary, emollient and Dermol to wash area and moisturize. Do not put perfumed washing products near the area, and shower instead of bathing.

When the soreness is at its worst I use cortisone ointment. I have used HRT suppositories previously with some success.

I used Replens every night for a week, followed by using it every one or two days. I used Vagisil when the pain was particularly bad and drank loads of water. All this seems to have helped and my symptoms are less severe now, although I continue using the treatments. I suppose this will be necessary forever.
