Comment:
For years I have had extreme dryness in the vaginal area due to hysterectomy have tried other injectables that were messy etc.. but this ring has seemingly made the tissue in that area more healthy and helped with the dryness. Although I seem to have attained a bigger middle, weight has stayed around the same but the waistline is bigger. Do you think that is because of Estring?
