Only got 15 doses out of a "30" dose tube and ran out one month early! Sexual intercouse noticeable better after one months of starting treatment. Next tube I plan on carefully measuring for actual dosage that comes out!

Comment:
I too have had reasonably good results with Premarin cream, but as others have noted, I've had 4 tubes in a row, from two different pharmacies, that had significant air bubbles. This means the tube was never full, and I routinely get between half and two-thirds the doses I should be getting.

Comment:
Life saving product! I'm still able to be sexually active thanks to this cream. I insert it twice a week, and it keeps my vaginal area moist and "ready" to go. No need for messy lubricants. It also has minimized the frequency of vaginal infections (yeast/bacterial) to which I was prone. Absolutely no negative side effects. However, I agree with another reviewer that it is expen ...
