Using clob/estrogen for lichen sclerosis -2 years constant fare ups- since menopause. Tried protopic. New dr. Started e&t and singular. Any feedback?
Clobetasol 0.05%: If it's biopsy proven lichen sclerosis, clobetasol seems to be the best treatment. Estrogen is only used for atrophy (thin dry mucosal surfaces from low estrogen). Usually ls is a long term condition but if all else has failed, use the Protopic with careful follow-up with your doc. Testosterone rarely helps long term. Good luck with singular, I've not tried this for ls, interesting idea. ...Read more

This seems to implicate synthetic progestins since the same does not hold true for progesterone. I suspect the problem child in HRT therapy is synthetic progestin (medroxy Progesterone acetate). The focus is always on estrogen though. ...Read more

Menopausal; estrogen 69 progesterone 0.4. Terrible bouts of insomnia; some days no sleep, other days broken sleep. Any advice? Don't say sleep hygene.

BTW, if you decide to "wait it out", sx could last 1-20 yrs.
Good luck ...Read more
Will estrogen cream stop/slow progression of moderate cystocele or is it just a matter of time before it totally falls out now that I am post menopause?
No: Please try to ignore synthetic argument when it comes to medications. Everything is synthetic unless you pick it off tree or pull it off ground or kill animal. Even clover, soy & yam have to be synthesized into hormone product. Check out my discussion at http://alvinblin. Com/2013/04/new-drug-big-pharma-goes-bio-identical. Html.
