Topical Estrogen – What You Should Know Fact Sheet
Women who have gone through menopause often have vaginal dryness. This problem is also common in those who have had both of their ovaries surgically removed. In some cases, vaginal dryness can lead to pain with sex, burning vaginal discomfort or itching, recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) or abnormal vaginal discharge. Topical estrogen is a prescription treatment that can help lower or ease these symptoms.
