    Have been taking Vagifem (in spite of the cost) for several years and it has worked great.

Also have diarrhea every three months and am wondering if that too may be due to the drug. Thanks for responding.

    I am 62 years old and have been using the tablets for about a year and a half now - I use 1 10MCB tablet twice a week. Sex was gradually becoming more painful until finally I literally could not even stand the pain. I didn't realize what was causing the pain.

    The drug was easy to use and extremely effective. After 2 weeks of use I started to have headaches, diarrhea, bloating and gas/abdominal pains. Then burning and itching, nausea and gained 5 lbs. While driving to work the light bulb turned on in my head. I am having an allergic reaction to the drug, exhibiting every side effect listed. On my way to the doctor right now.

    I am 59 years old and started using this product three years ago due to atrophy of the vagina which was affecting my bladder and sex life. My doctor tried several things, all of which had serious side effects for me. This product, on the other hand, has worked great for me on both issues. My only complaint has been the cost (and the name, seriously?!?), but weighing the pros and cons of my trea ... Show Full Comment

    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.
