    This medication put me inhell! It caused me to develop melasma after not even three months of use. My whole face has become spotted and black and it cannot be cured. Now I am depressed all the time and have to seek professional counseling. The risks outweight the benefits. Go natural. Hate Vagifem.

    I have been on this med for ~14 months and it helped greatly with dryness. I have always been plagued by headaches but as of late they are constant so I will look into this as an issue. Some diminished orgasm but patience helps.

Has anyone else experienced this while using this ... Show Full Comment
