Varies: It is not possible to predict how any one patient is going to respond to over the counter non hormonal treatments for vaginal dryness. Prevaleaf Oasis is a product I often recommend. Some patients may be candidates for a prescription medication called Osphena. Discuss with your doctor if this is an option for you.
