Ethinyl estradiol is five times more potent that estradiol, which is why it suppresses ovary function. You may be better served with natural hormones to deal with perimenopausal symtpoms and an IUD or other form of contraception to prevent pregnancy. ...Read more

Vulvodynia?: Yvette, in earlier question you were concerned about herpes and other STDs. Since those tests were negative, I speculated about idiopathic vulvodynia. That sill seems likely.

You'll probably never get any more useful info on this forum. ...Read more

Yeast infection...: ...is the most common cause of vaginal burning or itching, and can be difficult to confirm even by expert physicians. Ask your doctor if yeast could have been missed, or if it would make sense to try treatment for the possibility. Treatment is easy with vaginal creams or inserts, or a single dose of fluconazole (Diflucan®) by mouth. So maybe it's worth a try. Good luck. ...Read more
