1-2 weeks: When the estrogen is given directly into the vagina (as a cream, tablet or ring) then it is quite rapid the turnaround in symptoms. The actual vagina skin does not make its full recovery until around 2 wks of use. Using oral estrogen sometimes takes a long time, much longer by weeks even months to rebuild the vaginal tissue.
