    Just hit the 3 month mark and have replaced my first a estring with a second one. I'm delighted with the results and I may even speak for my husband who is pleased that sex doesn't hurt (me) now! I am 60, he is 45 and we've had a long period of little to no love making. Some time ago, I tried estrogen laced cream and couldn't stay with it ... Too messy. My gynecologist recommended ...

    I'm 58 and stopped having periods about 2-3 years ago. My symptoms have been relatively minor but have been really suffering from vaginal dryness. My husband and I both have lubed up to the point that we could go sliding off the bed. I finally broke down and got the Estring and I am SO happy that I did. My doctor said I wouldn't notice anything for 5-6 weeks. Well honey, I'm here to te ... Show Full Comment

    Had an abdominal hysterectomy,with cervix removal 20 years ago. Am 68, experiencing vaginal dryness and vaginal atrophy, which makes intimate relations with my husband uncomfortable. Doctor prescribed Estring upon my request, although she was not familiar with the ring. I had a real problem keeping the ring in place, it kept slipping down.

    I kept the ring in for 6weeks but I had to take it out because of leg cramps and my hair falling out. Was very satisfied with it making my dryness issue go away. Hope I can find something else to take without these issues.

    I was using this drug to help strengthen the vaginal walls after bladder surgery. I had a hysterectomy many years ago. I have problems keeping it in place but the worst problem is extreme itching and irritation. Almost unbearable. I will no longer use this ring because of that. Wish it had worked for me because I won't use oral hormones due to history of heart problems.
