    71 years old, have used for 5 years for painful sex. Added Estrace cream 2 years ago 3 nights a week. All good now except the cost. Am going to try vagifem 1 night a week instead of 2 times. No side effects.

    64 yr. old experiencing very painful intercourse. Cannot afford it nor can I justify the cost of this drug...$259.00 for a 30 day supply...12 pills...outrageous! I will go back to using the cream that works if used as directed...just a little messy. Don't waste your time or money. Few side effects with the cream too.

    Have been taking (at great expense) for nearly a year and have gotten minimal benefit in exchange for very significant hair loss and other side effects. The drug caused a very slight reduction in the painful intercourse symptoms but not anywhere near enough to justify the hair loss. I am seeing my doctor soon about other options.
