    This has been an effective solution for me, however not allowed via Medicare Part D. It had been previously, but pricey. Now they offer a limited offer of a reduced price for cash buyers.

    Vaginal dryness is gone. Intercourse is no longer painful. I definitely recommend for these purposes. I do have manageable hot flashes (I did not have them as much during menopause.)

    My experience with this drug was very mixed. I took it for 30 days. Intercourse was definitely less painful, but the side effects were awful. Hot flashes and night sweating increased by 10 fold. I gained about 5-7 lbs WHILE dieting. The worst side effect by far was the insomnia. It was debilitating. My doctor even prescribed sleeping pills, which did absolutely nothing.

Obviously, I was not on it long enough to see if it would work, but the side effects were not something I cared to deal with.
