premarin vaginal cream-bad smell

Have any of you noticed a bad smell when using premarin vaginal cream? It really helps my dryness issues, but I don't know if I can continue to tolerate this smell.

premarin vaginal cream-bad smell


I use Estrace vaginal cream (has estradiol in it) and notice no smell. Do you only have it when you use the cream? Is there any chance you might have an infection going on and this causes the smell to be noticed?

Is there an expiration date on the tube? Also be sure the applicator stays super clean before using each time.

I would check with dr and see what he says.

Let us know what you find out?

Maybe someone who uses Premarin cream will come by and give us some insight.

premarin vaginal cream-bad smell

Oh my gosh!! It STINKS!!! I tried it a few weeks ago and I couldn't stand it. It did seem to help, but the smell was horrible. I thought I was getting an infection, but it was the cream.

Perhaps we just got hold of a bad tube or something, but I had to stop using it. And, I forgot to ask dr. for Vagifem!

Sorry you're having the same problem.

premarin cream

Thank you both for your responses. Yes, the only time I notice the smell is when I use it once or twice a week. I've only been using it 2 months. I will be seeing my Dr. in a couple of weeks,and will ask for something different. It works so well-too bad it smells so bad when using it.

Premarin Cream Odor

I tried a tube of Premarin cream many years ago. My guess is that it did smell bad because it had a heavy rose fragrance added but it still smelled bad and seemed irritating. I sniffed a friend's Premarin cream about a year ago and there was no longer any rose fragrance; it didn't seem to have much odor in the tube. Diana
