    Used for vaginal atrophy and painful intercourse. Dr prescribed to use daily for 10 days and then twice a day to maintain.

    Third nite using and its a miracle.I have labial atrophy,burning and recently a bad UTI. Cannot believe how this has helped.I Was shocked to find my labia are very small.I am 66.Went thru menopause @ 41. Started having issues a few months ago,including growing a beard. Using only on labia and uretha,not in vagina.

I've read that bladder control pads can cause many health problems including cancer etc and I have used these too ... Show Full Comment
