    Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse after menopause made me seek a solution. Dryness is totally corrected but intercourse can still be painful because it didn't really help with the lack of elasticity. Have been using for 1 year and plan to take a break to see what the effect will be. It is wonderful to feel back to normal but worry about long term use which is why I'll take a break fr ...

    I tried the the Estring to relieve dryness and vaginal atrophia. I have had a hysterectomy and since i have used a diaphragm before, I thought this would work for me. It is very uncomfortable especially while sitting. It feels like low level cramping and really uncomfortable during bowel movements. I tried repositioning it but it reverts up behind the pelvic bone and increases pressure. After ... Show Full Comment

    I call it my "happy ring". I am on my 4th one at the end of a year. I am 71 yrs. old and had a hysterectomy in l991. Vaginal dryness made intercourse intolerable. This solved all of my problems. I do not need to remove it during relations, and there is plenty of lubrication and no discomfort whatsoever. It is a miracle ring.

    My doctor recommended I use estring for post menopausal dryness; it does help me but I did experience a few sharp pangs of breast pain, which worries me. I had a little trouble removing it, but not too much. I have gained belly weight, which has really been annoying - didn't realize til I read other posts here that it could be related! Now I am not sure I will continue.

    I am a 57 year old woman who is still having periods, but am probably in perimenopause. I was having problems with vaginal dryness and pain during intercourse, even with lubricants. The Estring ring has helped me immensely. Now, intercourse is not painful at all and I am normal natural vaginal discharge once again. No problems with dryness and no problems with weight gain. The only symptom I'm ... Show Full Comment
