    Immediately began heavy dark discharge, cramping in pelvic area and daily severe leg cramps. I used this medication for a month and gained six pounds which I am having great difficulty losing. I saw no decrease in painful intercourse. Mood swings were awful. Upon stopping the medication experienced itching all over my body. Not a good medication for me.

Though it's still pricey. I'm wondering whether taking the drug every other day rather than daily might work.

    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.) I also sometimes wake up with a dry mouth or cold or hot at night when I shouldn't based on the room temperature. I used a coupon from the gyn, and after that expired my pharmacist told me to get another online. I ... Show Full Comment

    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. I finally had to quit taki ... Show Full Comment
