More comprehensive..: Vagifem twice a week is a gold standard, but depending on your age & whether or not you have had female surgery removing one or both of your ovaries, you should consider bhrt, ie, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, from a compounding pharmacy, on rx from your doctor. Beware of the former "gold standards" like premarin, (conjugated estrogens) provera, etc.Look into suzanne somers books, & a total cure.
