In brief: Vaginal estrogen

Works very well, it is low dose and if you do not have any contraindications , it is very safe to use, the vast majority of it stays in heh vagina, and just a small amount gets into your circulation.
There are 2 types of creams and 1 vaginal pill and a vaginal ring. In most of my patients i prefer using Estrace (estradiol) cream.
