    I tried the Estring because it was a little cheaper than Vagifem. What a mistake!!! Even my doctor said she couldn't get it to go in as far as directed! It almost stuck out! She suggested using a tampon to help it stay in place. What???? I have vaginal dryness due to menopause. Why would I want to use a tampon? It cost me $175.72 out of pocket and I can't even use it! Do not buy Estring. I ... Show Full Comment

    It has solved all my dryness and severe pain of trying to have sex since my hysterectomy. 53 is way to young to give up sex! My only problem I have is that I constantly had to keep pushing it back up higher. Excel citing and showering it was going so low it almost fell out. Need to find a way to keep it up and not keep falling down!

    I am 53 and suffer from extreme dryness & burning. Immediately upon doctor inserting ring, I felt the ring and it was very uncomfortable. Next day the pain was worsening, terrible burning, pressure in vagina and frequent and painful urination. Suffered horribly for 5 days, until I took it out.

    Comment:
    Was prescribed Estring as a treatment for vaginal atrophy, which not only made sex difficult but was chronically uncomfortable. It helped quite a bit with the general discomfort, and made intercourse somewhat easier. However, after a couple years of use, I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer and required a hysterectomy. Don't know that the Estring was at fault, but there is a known connectio ... Show Full Comment

    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 ...
