This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

it sounds like you could be developing some vaginal atrophy after your hysterectomy and removal of your ovaries.

Dr. David :

your hormone replacement therapy estrogen dose might not be enough for you.

Dr. David :

you need to see your GP doctor or get a gyn examination.

Dr. David :

you might benefit from a vaginal estrogen cream like premarin to help with vaginal atrophy

Dr. David :

you need to be checked for vaginal prolapse as well with an exam

Dr. David :

talk with your gyn doctor in april about if you have vaginal atrophy and if you would benefit from a vaginal estrogen cream. I think it will help

Dr. David :

let me know if you have more questions.

Dr. David :

thanks
